The main message from the Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group in Bali last week was that multilateralism should be kept to work and the trade war between the United States and China be stopped. Keep the global economy open despite some hurdles by populist movements. There is also a call for the US Federal Reserve to be more considerate regarding the impact of its money tightening policy on emerging markets.
