Excellencies, Ladies and gentlemen,
I am pleased to address this important summit.
You meet when the toll from COVID-19 continues to mount.
Around the world, the economic and social consequences are outpacing policy responses.
The pandemic has exposed the fragility not just of our health systems, but also of our global institutions and multilateral efforts.
We must address the immediate crisis and build back better.
International finance has a crucial role to play.
