“I can confirm that the Fund staff met with the Tunisian authorities here in Washington earlier this week, and they shared with us indeed their economic reform program and our technical discussions currently focus on understanding the details of their plans for that economic reform program,”

“The human tragedy, indeed, is a stark reminder that the pandemic continues to be a grave threat globally. And on that -- on that point, at the IMF, we are redoubling our efforts to foster global collaboration. We welcome the most recent announcements by several countries to provide immediate support to India, and just to reiterate that we believe a multilateral response is critical to overcome the pandemic, in India and globally,”

“The authorities have requested a three-year financial arrangement. Again, to help continue to fight against the pandemic and build forward to more inclusive growth. I can tell you discussions have progressed well with details yet to be ironed out on the potential magnitude of that financial assistance and on the authority's reform program that would be the compliment to any financial arrangement from the IMF. So, the exact final amount will depend on Uganda's estimated balance of payments needs and the strength of policies the authorities commit to implement,”

“On inflation, while we do see some transitory pickup in inflation, we do not see it likely that this would translate into a persistent overshooting of the FED’s target rate, which is average inflation of about 2%. And FED officials that's the U.S. Federal Reserve have emphasized that they have sufficient tools to control inflationary shocks and these include, of course, forward guidance, as well as actual monetary policy action,”
