The president said in a video conference that although the indicator is not the highest in the region, it is “quite good” for the national economy and that with this figure the Eurasian nation returned to pre-pandemic growth levels.

Putin agreed with the words of Krislatina Georgieva, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, who said at the meeting that there are still many problems, but the global economy is gradually recovering from the crisis generated by Covid-19.

“The latest forecasts indicate that world GDP growth by the end of the year will amount to 5.9 percent, and for APEC economies this figure will be even higher, on average 6.4 percent,” Putin stressed.

However, he stressed that many socio-economic and other problems remain in the Asia-Pacific region and in the world in general.

In this regard, he noted that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is far from being defeated and warned about the possibility of the emergence of new strains, even more dangerous than the current ones. ef/abo/mgt/mml
