AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France, July 6 Global economic
activity should accelerate in 2015 after being gloomy at the
start of 2014, IMF chief Christine Lagarde said on Sunday,
adding that the Fund saw no brutal slowdown in China.
Lagarde said the impact of central banks' accomodative
policies on demand had its limits and countries should also act
to help growth - in particular with investment on
infrastructure, education and health - as long as their debt
would still be sustainable.
The IMF's update of its global economic outlook, expected
later this month, will be slightly different from the forecasts
published in April, she said.
Lagarde estimated that growth in China this year would be
between 7 and 7.5 percent.
