SHOTLIST

2. Close up, IMF logo on building
09 OCTOBER 2020, WASHINGTON DC
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Vitor Gaspar, Director of the Fiscal Affairs Department, International Monetary Fund (IMF):
“The Fiscal Monitor argues that premature withdrawal of fiscal support should be avoided while maintaining favorable conditions for Treasury financing. The Fiscal Monitor also makes the case for public investment as a bridge to a new growth model: a growth model that is resilient, smart, green and inclusive.”
4. Wide shot, Gaspar being interviewed
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Vitor Gaspar, Director of the Fiscal Affairs Department, International Monetary Fund (IMF):
“In the Fiscal Monitor we have medium-term projections and we see the public debt-to-GDP ratio stabilizing during the period 2021 to 2025. That occurs due to very low levels of interest rates and the gradual recovery in economic activity. Authorities all around the world would be well advised to use medium to long term fiscal frameworks in order to tackle preexisting imbalances and other legacies.”
6. Wide shot, Gaspar being interviewed
7. SOUNDBITE (English) Vitor Gaspar, Director of the Fiscal Affairs Department, International Monetary Fund (IMF):
“There is too much saving, too little investment. In times of uncertainty like the ones we live in, the Fiscal Monitor argues that public investment promotes private investment, employment and growth. It also helps with the transition to a new growth model, a growth model that is resilient, smart, green and inclusive.”
