IMF on future priorities: ‘Vaccinate, calibrate, accelerate’ – The National

The International Monetary Fund has said urgent policy action is needed to control the pandemic, limit economic scarring and transform the global economy.

In its latest global policy update, on Wednesday, the Washington-based lender said vaccination of the world population was paramount, and that policies should be calibrated to support the recovery and counter growing divergence within and between countries.

“Now is the time to come together and set things right for future generations by steering our way out of the crisis and setting course for a more prosperous future,” the fund said.
