Event description

Description

Recent events point to rising policy uncertainty, which will certainly affect economic development outcomes across the globe. Masood Ahmed will discuss current trends in the global economy, seeking to answer how advanced, emerging, and developing economies are performing and where they are headed. He will explore the risks to this outlook, asking: What role will increasingly capable technology play in the development of emerging economies? What countries seem to dominate the world economy fifty years from now? Should we be concerned about the implications of an aging world population? By the end of this presentation, you will have a broad sense of where the world economy stands and where it is headed.

Masood Ahmed is the President of the Center for Global Development. He joined the Center in January 2017, capping a 35-year career driving economic development policy initiatives relating to debt, aid effectiveness, trade, and global economic prospects at major international institutions including the IMF, World Bank, and DFID. Mr. Ahmed joined CGD from the IMF, where he served as Director of the Middle East and Central Asia Department. In that role, he oversaw the Fund’s operations in 32 countries, and managed relationships with key national and regional policy makers and stakeholders. Born and raised in Pakistan, Mr. Ahmed moved to London in 1971, where he obtained a BSc Honors as well as MSc in Economics with distinction at the London School of Economics.
