Covid-19 and the New Era of Policy Making in Emerging Economies

12th Annual Conference RBWC / Reserve Bank of Peru

July 24, 2020



In less than six months, the Covid-19 crisis has transformed the world. Its impact is already huge; and its social, health, economic, and geopolitical implications will linger in years to come. Covid-19 has magnified global trends that were already brewing. The global economy will face the deepest recession in peacetime history. The IMF World Economic Outlook envisages a 5% fall in global GDP this year, with advanced countries and emerging market economies (EMEs) slowing down at 8% and 3%, respectively.

Will the pandemic reverse globalization? To what extent will the integrated global economy survive? Are multilateralism and international cooperation at risk? Should EMEs implement unconventional monetary strategies? What has been the experience so far in this field?
