The Bretton Woods Committee is the nonpartisan network of prominent global citizens which works to demonstrate the value of international economic cooperation and to foster strong, effective Bretton Woods institutions as forces for global well-being.
The Committee was created in 1983 at the suggestion of two former Treasury officials – Secretary Henry Fowler and Deputy Secretary Charls Walker, a Democrat and a Republican – who saw the need for an organized effort to ensure that leading citizens spoke about the importance of the international financial institutions (IFIs).
Committee members are leaders at the top of the business, finance, academic, and non-profit sectors, including many industry CEOs, as well as former presidents, cabinet-level officials, and lawmakers who share the belief that international economic cooperation is essential and best served through strong and effective IFIs. Through the Committee, they champion global efforts to spur economic growth, alleviate poverty, and improve financial stability.
The Committee organizes frequent conferences, seminars, and educational activities. Many of these events are designed to reach a broad public audience, while others offer members the opportunity to provide important advice, support, and constructive criticism to the management of the IFIs. Working closely with successive U.S. administrations, the Committee also reminds elected leaders that global economic prosperity and lasting national security are closely tied to continued progress on multilateral issues.
The Committee relies solely on the funding of its members and does not accept funds from governments or the multilateral institutions.
