FM Nirmala Sitharaman attends Plenary Meeting of IMF & Financial Committee of IMF

@nsitharaman
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today attended the Plenary Meeting of the International Monetary and Financial Committee of the International Monetary Fund, IMF through video conferencing.
 
The meeting was attended by Governors or Alternate Governors representing 190 member countries of the IMF.
 
The discussions at the meeting were based on IMF Managing Director’s Global Policy Agenda titled - Bolstering the Recovery, Countering Divergence.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Mrs Sitharaman emphasized that the Global Policy Agenda's suggestion to hasten the transition to a low-carbon economy for promoting growth that benefits all needs to be viewed in the context of its implications for the Emerging Market and Developing Economies and low-income economies.
 
She endorsed the view of the IMF that the key priority remains to end the pandemic and the universal availability of vaccines and medical solutions need to be ensured.
 
Mrs Sitharaman informed the Committee that the world’s largest vaccination drive is under way in India with more than 83 million doses administered.
 
She said, India has supplied 65 million made-in-India COVID-19 vaccine doses to 80 countries, including 10 million vaccine doses as grant.
