1. B-ROLL: Exterior IMF
Washington, DC --- 11 March 2021
2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gerry Rice, IMF Spokesman:

“Many emerging market and developing economies, particularly those with financial vulnerabilities and weak trade ties to the U.S. should be ready with contingent policies to potential downside risks and again, a possible tightening in financial conditions. So, bottom line on the impact is we see potentially significant positive spillovers in terms of global growth, but as always, keeping a watchful eye at the same time on potential risks,”

4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gerry Rice, IMF Spokesman:

“Minister Guzman has indicated he will come to Washington for meetings with IMF staff and indeed with the managing director, Kristalina Georgieva. And on that's going to be on March 23rd and 24th. I believe that a visit of the minister to the IMF and I would expect those meetings again to focus on how the IMF can help the government put in place those policies that can help foster stability, be the basis for more sustainable, inclusive private sector led growth, with a strong emphasis, as I've said here before, on protecting Argentina's most vulnerable people,”

6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gerry Rice, IMF Spokesman:

“The five-year plan reconfirms China's 2060 carbon neutrality goal and going forward, of course, the focus will turn to implementation of that goal. And in this context, investment into non-fossil fuels, combined with continued curbing of carbon emissions and energy intensities, represent important steps towards slowing global warming. It will be important to set China's carbon emissions on that downward trajectory that is commensurate with the scale of the global climate challenge. All countries, including China, again, need to set their carbon emissions on downward paths consistent with global climate targets. On that, more general note that you asked about Gabriel how is the global economy doing? All countries, including China, again, need to set their carbon emissions on downward paths consistent with global climate targets,”
