“The world is facing an unprecedented crisis in the coming year, a period which would be unusually difficult,’’ IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, told a news conference in Washington.
Georgieva said that even if the pandemic loosened its grip in the second half of the year and parts of the economy were allowed to re-start, only a partial recovery could be expected.
The IMF chief emphasised how difficult it was to make prognoses of this kind.
The situation could end up being even worse, depending on how long the pandemic lasts.
