IMF considering cut to eurozone growth due to COVID-19, inflation Updated: 2021-12-08 04:47:10 KST

The IMF could cut its growth forecast for the euro area due to concerns over the Omicron variant and persistently high inflation.
This is according to the agency's Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, speaking Monday on CNBC.
As of October, the IMF forecast 2022 growth in the eurozone to reach 4.3 percent.
The IMF's main concerns, she said, are growing supply pressures, high energy prices and new virus restrictions.
She added the biggest threat to the world economy is still COVID-19, and that while the IMF advocates vaccinations, there has not been enough progress.
