WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The International Monetary Fund is urging countries to continue strong fiscal and monetary efforts to support their economies given what it sees as a ‘great deal of uncertainty’ about the risks posed by a resurgence in COVID-19 cases and new variants.
“The global economy is at a critical juncture,” IMF spokesman Gerry Rice told reporters at an online briefing. “There remains a great deal of uncertainty.”
Rice said the IMF would release an updated global economic forecast on Jan. 26 that would reflect recent developments, including development and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and fresh stimulus measures in the United States and Japan.
