Washington, DC --- 08 April 2019
2. Midshot Gita Gopinath, IMF Chief Economist / Economic Counselor
3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gita Gopinath, IMF Chief Economist / Economic Counselor:
“So the global economy is in a synchronized slowdown and we are downgrading growth once again for 2019 to 3 percent, which is the slowest pace since the global financial crisis. Now we project a modest recovery in 2020 to 3.4 percent. However that remains precarious.”
4. Midshot
5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gita Gopinath, IMF Chief Economist / Economic Counselor:
“The major downside risk to the outlook is heightened trade tensions and geopolitical tensions. This could derail an already fragile recovery that we're projecting for emerging markets and developing economies, and including the euro area.”
6. Midshot
7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gita Gopinath, IMF Chief Economist / Economic Counselor:
“So to rejuvenate growth policymakers should unwind the trade barriers and reduce geopolitical tensions. Monetary policy should remain accommodative, but it cannot be the only game in town. Fiscal policy also should play a role especially in countries that have fiscal space.”
