Measures to boost global growth amid rising uncertainties will be the focus when G20 ministers meet this week in Chengdu, Sichuan province.
Policy response to Brexit is expected to be one of key issues to be discussed during the meeting, as the referendum result would add long-term uncertainties to the faltering global economy, according to Lian Ping, chief economist with Bank of Communications.
The third 2016 G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting, which is scheduled to be held in Chengdu, Sichuan province on Saturday and Sunday are the first minister-level financial meeting held after the British referendum.
Central bankers and financial ministers are expected to reiterate the importance of providing sufficient liquidity to avoid market volatility, to support globalization of trade and investment, and to refrain from competitive devaluation, according to a report by China International Capital Corp (CICC) released earlier this week.
The CICC report followed earlier argument made by Gerry Rice, director of Communications Department with International Monetary Fund, who stressed the importance of decisive policies at a news conference last week, and that there should be something we would expect the G20 to be seized off in regard of potentially negative impact on growth for the global economy.
G20 ministers have reached the agreement to enhance coordination of policy making and to inform one another of policy decisions that could lead to currency devaluation during the first 2016 G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting held in Shanghai in February.
As for whether China would devalue the currency, the report said that China would not trigger the currency war to squash global demand that remains to be weak, despite short term depreciation pressure exists.
Policy makers would stress the importance of structural reform, to use multiple tools to strengthen growth and to enhance financial sector reform, the report said.
