“Covid-19 was a very large shock, fiscal policy came to the rescue, public deficits and debt increased everywhere. That was crucial to allow resources to be made available to the health system, to extend lifelines to firms and households, and to avoid an even greater contraction in economic activity and employment,”

5. SOUNBITE (English) Vitor Gaspar, Director of the Fiscal Affairs department, IMF
“The pandemic will not be under control anywhere before it is under control everywhere. The sooner that happens, the sooner we will have a recovery, the sooner people and firms will be able to stand on their own two feet without government support. Making vaccines available globally is the best investment of all,”

“For economies that can afford it, public investment is extremely opportune. It can help create jobs. It can facilitate the transition to growth, which is smart, green, resilient, and inclusive. In times of elevated uncertainty like those in which we live, in public investment can provide a bridge that allows private entrepreneurs to cross and private investment to pick up,”
