WASHINGTON, July 6 (Reuters) - The World Bank and International Monetary Fund will hold their annual Fall Meetings online in October due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, World Bank President David Malpass said in a letter to the Bank's governors.

Malpass also encouraged those countries that are considering appointing new executive directors to represent them on the Bank's boards to factor gender diversity into their decisions. Currently only five of 25 current directors are women, he said.
