US: The head of the International Monetary Fund warned on Monday of a “dangerous divergence” between wealthy and developing countries as they seek to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kristalina Georgieva said that strong growth in wealthy countries like the United States was “good news” but developing countries were being held back by slow vaccination rates.
“That is danger for the coherence of growth and it is also a danger for global stability and security,” she told the Paris Peace Forum where the heads of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and World Bank also spoke.
WTO director-general Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala similarly expressed concerns, warning of a “K-shaped recovery” with regions like Latin America, the Middle East and Africa that have lower vaccination rates experiencing very slow growth.
Eurozone: The European Central Bank is open to giving banks in the euro zone more time to rebuild capital buffers if the current crisis leads to a material deterioration of asset quality, ECB bank supervisor Andrea Enria said on Monday.
“We plan to stick to the flexibility that we provide banks, to use the capital buffers until at least 2022,” Enria told an online conference. “But we can also reconsider the time path if there were to be a significant materialisation of asset quality problems.”
“We don’t want to start tightening again the capital buffers while the crisis is still impacting on the banks’ balance sheets,” Enria added.
