In a statement published in CBI’s official website, the bank also announced that CBI Governor Abdolnaser Hemmati wasn’t able to attend the IMF Spring Summit because of his tight work schedule.

“The governor cancelled his visit to Washington which was due last Monday.” the statement read.

Golamreza Tajgardoun, the head of Majlis planning and budget committee, attended the spring meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund which was held in Washington, D.C.
