IMF economic adviser Pierre-Olivier Gourinches said that the global economy is facing many challenges due to Russia’s attack on Ukraine, inflation is making people’s daily necessities expensive. He said that in 2024, the economic growth rate of a third of the countries could remain negative which could stop the pace of development in the US, the European Union and China.
