The IMF recently revised its projection of global economic growth for 2021 from 5.2% to 5.5%, citing expectations of a vaccine-driven strengthening of activity later this year and additional policy support by governments. The IMF Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific will host a webinar on the recent World Economic Outlook (WEO) with two speakers from the IMF Research Department on February 24. They will present an overview of the IMF’s latest global economic outlook and policy priorities for securing the recovery, and a strategy to combat climate change through a combination of a green investment push combined with steadily rising carbon prices.

Malhar Nabar, Division Chief in the World Economic Studies Division in the IMF’s Research Department
