It said the global economy will grow 3.7 percent this year, the same as in 2017 but down from the 3.9 percent it was forecasting for 2018 in July. "Given the inflation outlook, monetary policy could also be adjusted from its moderately tight stance toward a neutral stance in Russian Federation".

In addition to the revised outlook for the rest of this year, the International Monetary Fund has downgraded expectations for China in 2019 - from 6.6 percent to 6.2 percent.

"It's tempting to be a bit depressed about this perspective but I'm actually hopeful because there is a clear appetite to improve and expand trade", she said.

These include instances where some key economies have supported their growth with policies that seem unsustainable over the longer term. "These concerns raise the urgency for policymakers to act". The report said that aggregate growth in the emerging market and developing economy group stabilised in the first half of 2018.

"Since mid-April, rising United States interest rates and a stronger USA dollar - coupled with intensified trade tensions - have triggered a reversal in portfolio flows, an increase in borrowing costs, and a weakening in local currencies in some emerging markets", the report noted.
