IMF warns of risks to global financial stability
The head of the International Monetary Fund called for greater vigilance over the global financial system during a speech in China on Sunday in which she also pointed to “green shoots” emerging in the world’s second-largest economy.
“Risks to financial stability have increased,” IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said during remarks at the China Development Forum in Beijing.
Georgieva lauded how policy-makers had acted swiftly in response to the banking crisis, citing the recent collaboration by major central banks to boost the flow of US dollars around the world.
“These actions have eased market stress to some extent,” she said. “But uncertainty is high, which underscores the need for vigilance.”
Georgieva said Sunday that the IMF was continuing to watch the situation, and assess potential implications for the global economic outlook.
Meanwhile, she reiterated an IMF projection that the world economy will see growth slow to just under 3% this year, due to continued fallout from the pandemic, the conflicts and tighter monetary policies. That’s compared to the historic average of 3.8%, according to Georgieva, and down from 3.2% in 2022.
But she also pointed to the emergence of “green shoots” in China, where the IMF expects the recently reopened economy to expand by 5.2% this year. That’s roughly in line with Beijing’s official target of 5%.
