The world economy began to recover after a record fall in the beginning of the year because of the pandemic coronavirus, but risks remain. This opinion blog was expressed by the managing Director of the International monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva.

“Last month, the IMF said about the deterioration of economic prospects and forecasted a reduction of global growth of 4.9% this year. Some good news is that the global economic activity, an unprecedented decline that was recorded earlier this year, began to recover gradually. It is anticipated that partial recovery will continue in 2021,” said Georgieva.

Other risks include asset valuation, unstable commodity prices, growing protectionism and political instability. On the other hand, a breakthrough in the field of vaccines and treatment methods can raise confidence and increase economic activity. These alternative scenarios indicate that the level of uncertainty remains exceptionally high,” – said the head of the IMF.
