IMF chief Lagarde: 'Global growth forecasts are fairly good'


Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), gave an interview to FRANCE 24 in the Moroccan city of Marrakech. She discussed the IMF's recent global growth forecasts, calling them "fairly good" at 3.9% for both 2018 and 2019. Lagarde added that this growth is "generated by more than 120 countries, which represent roughly three-quarters of the world economy".
