The 2015 Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund will take place in Lima, Peru, in October 2015, following a vote by the Boards of Governors of the two institutions.

The Annual Meetings—which bring together ministers of finance and central bank governors from the institutions’ 188 member countries—provide a unique opportunity for a broad dialogue on issues of global economic importance.

They serve to discuss international economic and financial developments, the state of the global economy, and policies to reduce poverty and promote inclusive economic growth.

The Annual Meetings also provide a forum for civil society, the private sector, academics and others to engage in discussions on economic issues.

The last time the Annual Meetings were held in Latin America was in 1967 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    Perhaps this means they are going to fix and report real inflation and GDP numbers my December.

    Yes but Latin America isn't returning to the WB and IMF, they're going the other way =) Interesting to note the last meeting was in the height of the Brazilian dictatorship...

    Brazil will not leave the WB and IMF. They made it to the top ten worls economies and highly unlikely they will leave.
