The latest edition of the IMF's World Economic Outlook will be presented by two of its authors and discussed with the audience. It provides an update of the IMF's global economic outlook for the short and long term. Short-term growth prospects are still hampered by the continued burden of high inflation and the consequences of the invasion of Ukraine triggering wider geopolitical tensions and supply-chain disruptions. More recently, questions have emerged - at least in some countries - about financial stability. Growth may also be affected by the increasing fragmentation of the global economy. The IMF studies in depth the consequences of the growing concentration of foreign direct investment along geopolitical lines, which could affect more directly emerging and developing economies.
The presentation will be held in English and the Questions/Answers session in French and English.
