BRUSSELS. – The managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgieva, stressed that in 2021 vaccines are “the most important economic policy”, and stressed that support measures for companies and households should only be withdrawn after the pandemic ends.
"We all know that until we defeat the pandemic everywhere, we run the risk of new mutations emerging that threaten our progress," declared the Bulgarian politician during the European Parliamentary Week, an event organized by the European Parliament and the Portuguese Parliament.
In this regard, he assured that increasing the production and distribution of injections is a "critical" issue and added that so is additional funding to secure doses and pay for logistics, and carry out the reallocation of excess supply.
Georgieva recalled that the IMF currently expects global GDP to grow by 5,5% this year, while in the European Union it will grow by 4,2%. External source
