Looking to the Future...


We can anticipate a further integration of markets and massive global private capital flows.

We can also anticipate tough challenges: poverty, aging of populations, and a surge in extremism and violence if the inequalities between the poorest and most affluent countries are not reduced.

The IMF will meet these challenges by responding to the needs of each of its members and by responding to the systemic needs of a globalized world.
