3. Soundbite (English) IMF Communications Director Gerry Rice:
“We have inflation continuing to rise, particularly a number of advanced economies leading to the tightening of monetary policy. So, you know, we're seeing this confluence of crises which the Managing Director talked about the combination of all these things going in in the same direction of downside risks materializing. And so, again, I think we can reasonably you can reasonably expect that there will be a downward revision of the growth forecast for 2022 compared to what we were forecasting only a month-and-a-half ago.”

5. Soundbite (English) IMF Communications Director Gerry Rice:
“We continue to work with the authorities on the implementation of their comprehensive economic reform program. Complete and timely implementation of the first steps is key to initiate the process of addressing the deep-seated problems which Lebanon and the Lebanese people obviously face, and that have resulted in the deep crisis that that Lebanon faces and the large increases in poverty, which are of great concern.”

7. Soundbite (English) IMF Communications Director Gerry Rice:
“The IMF has received a request from the Tunisian authorities for an IMF supported program. We want to be a strong partner for Tunisia. We welcome the fact that the Tunisian authorities have published their proposed economic reform program. So we are now in technical discussions with the authorities. I would characterize those discussions, Heather, as advancing, and we hope that they will lead to a staff mission to start program discussions. Soon,”Cutaway Reporter online
