IMF's managing director says outlook for global economy has “darkened significantly” Updated: 2022-07-07 13:29:13 KST

The International Monetary Fund's managing director Kristalina Georgieva says the outlook for the global economy has "darkened significantly" since April and she "cannot rule out" a recession.
In an interview Wednesday with Reuters, she said the IMF is going to downgrade its forecast for global growth this year again in the coming weeks because of high inflation and rising interest rates.
In April, the IMF already slashed its growth forecast for this year by nearly a full percentage point to 3.6 percent.
The risk of a recession, she said, is higher next next year than this year.
