The IMF foresees global growth of 3.2% this year, down from the 3.4 percent it predicted in January.
However, following a series of meeting among IMF members, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde saw the global economy more positive.
IMF urged other nations to employ growth-friendly monetary, fiscal policies, and structural reforms to boost the economy./.
