ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde makes remarks to mark International Women's Day in Washington, D.C. She offered a brief statement, saying women matter "enormously," and that they contribute to the global economy. "We at the IMF are celebrating International Women's Day today. And I would like to share this moment with you to tell you that, at the IMF. We are trying to focus on women's issues: making sure that everybody knows that women make a difference, that women bring value to the table, that they contribute to the economy and that they matter enormously when it's a question of focusing on value, focusing on principles and delivering on what they promise," Lagarde said.
