Work Program

The Working Group is addressing how the multilateral system can be strengthened to address 21st century global challenges.

The Working Group is preparing recommendations to improve the sovereign debt resolution architecture and to prevent future crises.

The Working Group drives the Committee’s efforts to educate U.S. policymakers on the importance of the international financial institutions and continued U.S. support.

This Working Group will seek to address a range of topics and trends impacting the future of finance.
