In a real moment of multilateralism, the Bretton Woods conference was one where countries like India made their mark
An American military plane took off from Karachi in June 1944. One of the passengers was Reserve Bank of India governor C.D. Deshmukh. He was on his way to the US to attend a conference in a small New Hampshire town called Bretton Woods. The ambitious goal of the Bretton Woods conference was to get major countries to agree on a new international monetary system that would hopefully avoid the disastrous mistakes of the 1930s.
