墨西哥请求国际货币基金组织和世界银行帮助支持中等收入国家抵御新冠肺炎

新华网墨西哥城10月14日电(记者洪小涛)墨西哥14日呼吁国际货币基金组织(IMF)和世界银行为中等收入国家制定支持战略,称这些国家在应对COVID-19疫情带来的经济影响方面没有财政回旋余地。


墨西哥财政部长Arturo Herrera表示,墨西哥、秘鲁、哥伦比亚和保加利亚等国无力采取发达国家已经采取的那种紧急金融措施。


“我们没有这些回旋余地,无论是社会、财政还是经济。埃雷拉在推特上发布的一段视频中说:“与富裕国家不同,我们不会‘做所有需要做的事情’,但我们会做力所能及的事情。”


埃雷拉星期三上午参加了国际货币基金组织和世界银行的虚拟年度会议,这些会议通常在它们位于华盛顿的总部举行。


今年会议的中心主题是在疫情持续之际全球经济复苏。


国际货币基金组织在星期二发布的最新世界经济报告中预测,2020年全球经济将收缩4.4%,并警告说,走出危机的道路可能是“漫长、不平衡和高度不确定的”。

 

MEXICO CITY, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- Mexico on Wednesday called on the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank to establish a support strategy for middle-income countries, saying they have no financial wiggle room to tackle the economic fallout caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Countries such as Mexico, Peru, Colombia and Bulgaria cannot afford to take the kind of emergency financial measures that developed countries have adopted, Mexico's Finance Minister Arturo Herrera said.

"We do not have these margins of maneuver, neither social nor fiscal nor economic. Unlike them(richer countries), we do not do 'everything that is needed,' but (we do) what we can," Herrera said in a video posted on Twitter.

Herrera participated Wednesday morning in the virtual annual meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, which are usually held at their headquarters in Washington.

The central theme of this year's meetings focuses on the recovery of the global economy as the pandemic persists.

In its latest World Economic Report released Tuesday, the IMF projected that the global economy will contract 4.4 percent in 2020 and warned that a road out of the crisis will likely be "long, uneven and highly uncertain."
