IMF: War Sets Back the Global Recovery

11 May, 2022

The International Monetary Fund in co-operation with CERGE-EI invite you to a presentation of the IMF Regional Economic Outlook titled "War Sets Back the Global Recovery". According to the report, the war in Ukraine will have severe economic consequences for Europe, having struck when the recovery from the pandemic was still incomplete.

Large increases in commodity prices and compounded supply-side disruptions will further fuel inflation and cut into households’ incomes and firms’ profits. GDP growth for 2022 has thus been marked down by no less than 1 percentage point with respect to the January 2022 World Economic Outlook Update forecasts in most countries, with far larger output contraction anticipated in Russia and especially in Ukraine. Inflation is projected to hit a multi-decade high in many countries. And new risks loom from escalating fighting and disruptions to critical energy flows.

Wed 18 May from 4:00 pm - Room #7 - CERGE-EI, Politických vězňů 7, Prague 1

This is a face-to face event. No prior registration is required.
