IMF/Word Bank Meetings Seminar: Thursday, October 10, 2:00 pm.
Global growth has softened again. Downside risks have become more relevant. The euro area remains in recession with risks of stagnant growth and with financial fragmentation continuing to restrain credit. Other advanced economies, including the United States, are growing as expected but still face key risks. Emerging and developing economies remain relatively resilient, but for several economies growth is running below previous forecasts, with possibly wider implications.
The debate will focus on how policymakers could collaborate globally to better manage the downside risks and durably boost jobs and growth.
