IMF-World Bank Spring Meetings
Washington DC, USA

News Event:
The head of the International Monetary Fund said that after six years of disappointing growth, the world economy is finally gaining momentum. But she warned of potential threats, from political uncertainty in Europe to protectionism that could hinder trade.

Christine Lagarde, the IMF's managing director, said there is a critical need for more international cooperation. Restricting trade flows would be a "self-inflicted wound" that would harm workers and consumers, she said in a speech previewing this week's meetings in Washington of the 189-nation IMF and its sister lending organization, the World Bank.
