“Recognizing that inflation expectations are on the rise, but the view is that before we get out of easy money conditions we should expect a substantial recovery.”
“There was no G20 discussion on outgoing support measures, we are fully focused on the need for support.”
“The resistance from the financial sector has been substantial.”
“The G20 agreed on the need for greater financial inclusion and access to digitized payment systems.”
