Washington, DC, October 15, 2022 — International Monetary Fund Financial Committee (IMFC) Chair Nadia Calvino and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva summarized the outcome of the 46th IMFC at the 2022 IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings.


IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said that the message from the IMF is clear.


We recognize that we need to do more, especially in debt. So meeting participants are urging the IMF to forcefully step forward with possible solutions to bring more impactful needs to the standard framework. They are also asking to proactively work for the creditors and debtors to seek an early resolution to the problems for which we need clear guidelines. We need more predictability, and we need fair treatment of all creditors, public and private. Finally, I want to finish by saying what I said in the end. We were running out of time, and you turned to me and said, How would you sum up this meeting? And my summing up was to buckle up and keep going. And this is what we intend to do, said Georgieva.


IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva called for an end to Russia’s war on Ukraine.


“On a very human, practical, and objective level. Stop the war. Stop the war. I’m looking at this audience. Wouldn’t you think this is the most straightforward way to get the world economy in better shape? Stop the war,” said Georgieva.


IMFC Chair Nadia Calvino highlighted the global economic situation as a factor in the growth of far-right extremism.


“The current environment is one of slowing down growth, high cost of living or increasing cost of living in many parts of the world. But, in addition, big changes involve digitalization, climate change, geopolitical shift, and rising inequality in many of our countries. And this is an environment which is quite open to the messages of people that have elementary and ineffective and wrong solutions to complex matters,” said Calvino.
