ECNS App DownloadSpecial: Battle Against Novel CoronavirusThe policy-setting body of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Thursday warned of a highly uncertain and uneven global economic recovery, pledging to strengthen international cooperation on vaccines.
“The prospects for recovery are highly uncertain and uneven within and across countries due to varying policy space, different economic structures and rigidities, preexisting vulnerabilities, and uneven access to vaccines,” the International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC) said in a communique during the virtual spring meetings of the IMF and the World Bank.
“Elevated financial vulnerabilities could pose risks, should global financial conditions tighten swiftly. The crisis may cause extended scarring and exacerbate poverty and inequalities, while climate change and other shared challenges are becoming more pressing,” the communique said.
The IMFC stressed the need for “strong international cooperation” to accelerate vaccine production and support affordable and equitable distribution to all.
“To that end, we continue to support the work of the World Health Organization, the ACT Accelerator collaboration, and its COVAX Facility,” the IMFC said.
The IMFC also called on the IMF to make a comprehensive proposal on a new Special Drawing Rights (SDR) general allocation of 650 billion U.S. dollars to help meet the long-term global need to supplement reserves.
IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said Thursday at a press conference that all IMFC members had expressed support for the SDR proposal and multilateral approaches to strengthen the global economy.
“In todays meeting, a number of our members called it historic. Indeed, this is the largest boost to reserves that our membership is giving us a mandate to follow up on,” Georgieva said, adding it will provide a substantial liquidity boost to all IMF members, especially the most vulnerable.
“And the innovation we are pursuing is for some of our better-off members to be able to allocate their SDRs for the common purpose of bringing the more vulnerable members to a sounder position. We need a recovery that works for all,” she said.
Created by the IMF in 1969, the SDR is an international reserve asset to supplement members official reserves. It can be exchanged among governments for freely usable currency in times of need. MorePhotoCanadas Ontario announces one-month lockdown as COVID-19 continues rampagingBeiDou directed seeders work in Xinjiangs cotton fieldsVerdant forest of metasequoia lights up Spring in JiangsuSpeed skating for Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics tested at National Speed Skating OvalNASA’s Mars helicopter carries a piece of Wright brothers’ plane for first flightChinese scientists discover neopterygian fish fossil 244 mln-year agoAquaculture floats at sea farm in Lianjiang, FujianIn pics: night life in WuhanPanda cub in Japan enjoys sunbath‘Dying town’ in Italy shrinks to one third of original sizeEagle carries wild pig into the airPoverty Alleviation: Chinas Experience and ContributionYulan magnolia flowers bloom on top of Huangshan MountainBlooming hydrangeas flowers attract visitors to NanjingNTU Singapore scientists develop plant communication deviceXiamen University holds gala evening to mark 100 yearsNew crack with lava appears at Icelandic Volcano130-ton selfie giant panda debuts in SW China13 Tibetan monks receive Buddhisms highest degreeNASA Ingenuity Mars Helicopter ready for first flightNewly-come bear cub makes friends with chimpanzee at Turkey’s zooEgypt to transport 22 mummies to new homeGiant panda Ai Bao enjoys afternoon leisure time in S KoreaScenery of Xiling Gorge amid the misty rainAmerican Museum of Natural History sees increasing number of visitorsBerlin to impose curfew from Easter amid rising COVID-19 concernsSunset scenery of Qinghai Lake picturesqueCOVID-19 vaccination underway in YunnanXiongan New Area under large-scale constructionHunan stages a Guochao show to promote traditional cultureJapanese stunt pilot draws a smile over TokyoBlue tears light up waters in XiamenThe Three Kingdoms exhibition held in ChengduSniffer dog trained to detect COVID-19 in human sweatGuangji Bridge in Guangdong: Free to connect and disconnectCherry blossom season arrives in Washington D.C.Most popular in 24h$(function () {$.ajaxSetup({cache: true});var tStr = new Date().getUTCHours()+_+ new Date().getUTCMinutes();$.ajax({type: “get”,dataType: “json”,url: “/part/6/ecns_rank24h.json?t=”+ tStr,success: function (status) {var str = “”;$.each(status,function(index,obj){obj.title = obj.title.replace(/'/g, ');str +=+obj[“title”]+;});$(“#rank24″).html(str);},error:function(status){}});});MoreTop newsHKSAR govt to further cultivate civil servants governance capability China refutes allegation of transfering pollutive enterprises to Kazakhstan: MOC China launches new satellite for space environment survey Putin, Merkel urge restraint amid Ukraine tensions China refutes U.S. intimidation accusationsMoreVideoDescendant of Flying Tigers rescuer recalls the pastNew explosive ordnance disposal tech debuts at training baseLINEMedia partners:Peoples Daily Online|Xinhuanet|China.org.cn|ChinaDaily.com.cn|CGTN|Globaltimes.cn|Chinaplus.cri.cn|Shine.cn|JSCHINA|
