The Bretton Woods committee, a group of academics, business executives, and financiers met in Washington to discuss the state of the global economy during their annual meeting. Their conference, entitled “Global Economic Problems, Solutions, and Business Outlook,” opened with a speech from Barber Conable, outgoing president of the World Bank, on the reorganization and performance of the World Bank. Following Mr. Conable’s speech, a number of international financiers including Mr. Frenkel and Mr. Gyohten discussed global financial prospects, extrapolated from current financial trends. They answered questions on financial matters from members of the audience. Secretary Brady spoke following the forum on the common principles of finance and democracy held by the Bretton Woods institutions. He discussed the economic reforms of Mexico to illustrate his point. Finally, Michael Camdessus, director of the International Monetary Fund, spoke on the activities and performance of the International Monetary Fund in aiding economic reform around the world, including Eastern Europe. The Bretton Woods committee works with national governments to raise awareness of the activities of international financial agencies such as the international monetary fund, the World Bank, and the four regional banks. The committee also produces occasional reports on issues related to international finance. close
