Fall 2018 Newsletter
To kick off November, we are pleased to share the Fall newsletter of the 2018-19 IFC-Milken Institute Capital Markets Program! The program trains mid-career professionals who share a passion for strengthening financial markets in developing and emerging economies. This summer, 22 exceptional policy-makers from across Africa and Asia joined us in Washington D.C. We are keeping them busy with tailored workshops, a speaker series led by prominent practitioners, and four intensive courses at the George Washington University.
