CIPE and PTF invite you to a panel discussion on:
The IMF, Public Finance, Corruption, and Civil Society
Wednesday, October 2nd
12:00 – 1:30 pm
1211 Connecticut Ave NW
The International Monetary Fund’s newly adopted anti-corruption framework has profound implications for emerging markets globally and signals a clear commitment by the institution to make corruption a key priority. In April 2019, the IMF published the Fiscal Monitor: Curbing Corruption, a major report under the direction of Vitor Gaspar, that comprehensively analyzes critical issues of corruption in government fiscal affairs – from procurement to the management of state-owned-enterprises.
On October 2, CIPE will host a panel discussion on public finance, corruption and civil society led by Vitor Gaspar, Director of Fiscal Affairs at the International Monetary Fund. Mr. Gaspar will be joined on the panel by Professor Brian Levy of John Hopkins University and Ekaterina Lysova, Program Officer for Europe & Eurasia at the Center for International Private Enterprise.
The Center for International Enterprise’s (CIPE) Anti-Corruption and Governance Center and the Partnership for Transparency Fund will be co-hosts for the event. Lunch will be provided.
