  • I hope it is not too late to express how glad I am to have participated in the AEW 2018 and how useful I found the sessions. The conversation we had at the Panel also facilitated our conversation with the IMF team of the independent report. We agreed to advance the conversation during the upcoming spring meeting. So the AEW was also good networking opportunity.
