G20 countries do their best to strengthen the global economy in an epidemic
The G20 decided to postpone debt service payments for the world’s poorest countries. We are talking about countries like Angola, Cambodia, Haiti, Nepal and others. The list includes more than 47 states. This decision will be valid from May 1 to the end of 2020.
The proposal to suspend the “debt burden” is open to the world’s poorest and least developed countries (as defined by the World Bank and the United Nations) until they repay the debt of the WB and IMF. This initiative is part of an effort to strengthen the global economy in coronavirus outbreaks.
Supported by the Paris Club of Lenders, the initiative is part of a globally coordinated effort to strengthen the global economy, which is facing the deepest recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s due to the epidemic.
German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz called the move “an act of international solidarity”, saying it would allow countries to invest in healthcare “immediately and without painstaking personal expertise.”
