Despite an improving global economy and better policies, significant downside risks remain. These relate to the potential for stalled policy implementation in Europe, unsustainable policies in the United States and Japan, and further growth disappointments in emerging markets. While near-term threats have been avoided and there are upside risks from better financial conditions and confidence, important challenges remain. Naoyuki Shinohara, Deputy Managing Director of the IMF, will be discussing the current macroeconomic outlook of the global economy. In addition, he will talk about current approaches being taken to resolve systemic risk, and the IMF’s role in achieving these approaches.

Naoyuki Shinohara, Deputy Managing Director, International Monetary Fund
