The world's economy is growing at a slightly slower pace than the IMF's initial forecasts in January. But top financial officials gathered in Washington for the annual Spring meetings - face a less threatening economic landscape, says IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde.
目前世界经济发展的速度比IMF一月份最初的预测要慢一些,但IMF总裁克里斯蒂娜·拉加德说,与会华盛顿参加年度春季会议的最高财政官员们所面临的经济局势的威胁并不那么大。

"Looking behind the numbers, we believe we have avoided the worst, and the economic world no longer looks quite as dangerous as it did," she said.
“回顾这些数字,我们相信已经避开了最糟糕的情况,经济世界已经不像过去那样危险了。”

But Lagarde added that the pick-up in financial conditions in the US, Europe and Japan has yet to translate into a sustainable recovery.
但拉加德说,美国、欧洲和日本财政状况的好转尚未转化为可持续的复苏。

"On the euro area, policy makers have accomplished a great deal over a short period of time. The priority now is to fix frayed banking systems, press ahead with a banking union. In Japan, which as I said is, has a space of its own, the recently announced framework of ambitious monetary easing, is, from our point of view, a positive step. But it is not enough," she said.
“在欧元地区,各国政府在很短的时间内完成了很多成绩。目前的当务之急是修复受损的银行系统,推进银行同盟。正如我之前所说,日本有自己的发展空间,在我们看来,最近该国宣布野心勃勃的货币宽松框架就是积极的一步,但这还不够。”

On Friday, finance ministers from 20 of the world's biggest economies endorsed Japan's efforts to boost its stagnant economy.But the stimulus package enacted by Japan's leaders also lowers the value of the yen - giving Japanese-made products a price advantage in world markets. In an official communique, G20 nations said they will monitor the effects of Japans's policies and take corrective action as needed.
周五,全世界20大经济体的财长们支持日本加强其不景气经济的举措。但日本领导人颁布的刺激方案也降低了日元的价值,这样日本产品在世界市场上就有了价格优势。G20国家在官方公报中表示,将监督日本政策的效果,并采取必要的修正措施。
