  • IMF published this video item, entitled “IMF—New thinking for a changing world” – below is their description.

    The IMF is responding to the policy challenges of a fast-changing global economy still reeling from the COVID-19 crisis: it is modernizing the way it provides its regular policy advice to member countries—a process known as surveillance. In the future, the IMF will systematically integrate in its analysis issues that have substantial macroeconomic impact such as inequality, climate change, and digital technology, so as to better deliver on its surveillance mandate and support member countries’ recovery from the crisis.
