It should be noted that this Thursday, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgievapointed out that the global growth will expand less than 3% this year, ahead of next week’s IMF and World Bank meetings. “With geopolitical tensions rising and inflation still high, a strong recovery remains elusive,” he said.
