Annual meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund were held between 9 October and 11 October 2015 in the Peruvian capital Lima.

The meetings saw the attendance of central bankers, finance ministers and development and private senior executives and academics from the member countries of both the World Bank Group and the IMF.

The Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his capacity as India's Governor on Board of Governors of IMF and the World Bank led the Indian delegation that included RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian among others.

• Shareholding review of the World Bank and changes in the financing structure of International Development Agency (IDA)
• The stalemate in the implementation of the 2010 IMF quota and governance reforms
