5. Wide of audience clapping and laughing
6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund
“For example, in Japan, it goes up to 380 percent. In Pakistan, it goes up to 1,000 percent. And that accordion from 20 percent to 1,000, universally means two things. And, I actually until I read this paper I didn’t realize what the serious economic issue this is. Of course, it means it is unfair, there is unfair distribution. But that is the minor issue. The bigger issue is it is inefficient.”
7. Close audience members
8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund
“Moving toward gender parity is actually good for everyone. It is good for women, but it is also good for men. There is no way for any society to prosper without tapping in the talent of all its people – men and women. It’s very simple, if you ignore part of your capabilities, you sure come short in terms of economic achievement.”
8. Wide audience applauding
