European Central Bank president Mario Draghi is in Washington today ahead of the International Monetary Fund's annual meeting tomorrow.

The meeting comes amid fear on Wall Street about a lack of growth in Eurozone countries. That fear has contributed to some turbulence in the stock market in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Hans Werner Sinn, president of the Munich-based IFO Institute for Economic Research told CNBC that if Eurozone countries don't undertake structural reforms, they'll face a "lost decade."

Michael Regan, of Bloomberg News joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss what to expect from the IMF meeting.
