CHICAGO, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Shawn Baldwin, global investments advisor and Chairman of AIA Group, joined business, government and policy leaders from around the world at the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group April 14-19 in Washington, D.C.
The invitation-only conference brings together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives and academics to discuss ways to boost economic growth and foster a sustainable, balanced and jobs-rich global economy.
Baldwin joined industry heavyweights including IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, former Federal Reserve Chairmen Paul Volcker and Ben Bernanke, and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Topics ranged from growth beyond commodities, the benefits and drawbacks of low oil prices and global development to environmental economics and sustainability.
"As we go forward two key factors in monetary policy will drive capital markets: quantitative easing by the European Central Bank led by Mario Draghi, along with interest rate increases at the Federal Reserve Market by Chair Janet Yellen," Baldwin said. "Both are critical to the global economy as we shift into the new investing paradigm."
