In line with this, G20 policymakers were nudged to intensively work in order to minimize and completely mitigate other economic threats connected to trade, climate change, and inequality. 

Financial chairpersons and central bankers from 20 leading economies will meet in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to assess the impact of the new strain of coronavirus, more commonly known as NCoV-2019.Despite the wide range of contagion, the IMF disclosed that it will still stick to its January prediction of 3.3%, margin higher from its 2.9 % forecast in 2019.
