Georgieva further added that their projections suggest that there will be a contraction in the global output in 2020 and a recovery in 2021.

Additional takeaways

"Depth of contraction and speed of recovery depend on containment of pandemic."

"Targeted fiscal support to households, businesses needed otherwise it will take years to overcome bankruptcies and layoffs."

"Asked G20 to double emergency financing capacity."

"Asked G20 to boost global liquidity through sizeable (Special Drawing Right) SDR allocations."
