The Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank bring together the most senior leaders of government, including foreign ministers, diplomats, economists and private sector experts. In recent years, the agenda has focused on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the promotion of global monetary cooperation to secure financial stability. In addition to the regular agenda, our relationships with institutions in Washington DC enables Global Voices to coordinate meetings with think-tanks including, the Atlantic Council and the Centre for Strategic and International Studies.

In 2019, Global Voices has partnered with the University of Melbourne Faculty of Economics and Business, Macquarie University, Curtin University and QUT Business School.
