5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gita Gopinath, IMF Head of Research:
“So the balance of risks are still so to the downside. Now there is some positive news from the U.S. China trade negotiations and from Brexit. However, geopolitical risks are rising. Social unrest is prevalent in many countries and we could see a re-escalation of trade tensions.”

7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gita Gopinath, IMF Head of Research:
“So to support the recovering growth, it's important for policymakers to do no harm. Monetary policy should remain accommodative and countries that have fiscal space should use it to improve social and human capital and climate friendly infrastructure.”
