September 18, 2023 - Since the devastating earthquake in Morocco on September 8, the World Bank (WB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) staff have worked in close coordination with the Moroccan authorities and a team of experts to assess Marrakech’s capacity to host the 2023 Annual Meetings.

Based on a careful review of the findings, the Managements of the WB and the IMF, together with the Moroccan authorities, have agreed to proceed with holding the 2023 Annual Meetings in Marrakech.

At this very difficult time, we believe that the Annual Meetings also provide an opportunity for the international community to stand by Morocco and its people, who have once again shown resilience in the face of tragedy.
