The global recovery continues. Although it is not yet complete, the more favorable conjuncture
offers an opportunity to tackle key policy challenges to stave off medium-term downside risks,
rebuild buffers, and raise potential output. Countries should undertake well-sequenced reforms to
increase productivity, improve governance, and reduce policy uncertainty and future risks. Reforms
should also aim to harness the benefits of technology and economic integration and ensure that
they are widely shared. Tackling challenges to the global economy continues to require cooperation
and joint action across the membership. The Fund will assist members through tailored policy
advice and capacity development, and stands ready to provide financial assistance to support
adjustment programs.
