The global economy is showing a faster recovery in growth than previously expected, but significant risks still remain, including new strains of coronavirus. This was stated by first deputy head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Geoffrey Okamoto, as the press service of the IMF reported.
“In January, we projected 2021 global growth at 5.5 percent, but prospects of a stronger recovery are emerging – because of additional fiscal stimulus, especially in the U.S., and the prospects of broader vaccination,” said Okamoto.
The IMF considers the economic recovery to be incomplete and uneven. In most countries, GDP indicators remain below pre-crisis levels.
