The International Monetary Fund (IMF) states, global economic expansion remains strong. The global financial system was stronger after the global financial crisis a few years ago. “The global financial system is stronger than before the financial crisis thanks to decades of reform and improvement,” said the IMF in the Global Financial Stability Report released at the 2018 IMF-World Bank Annual Meeting in Nusa Dua, Bali, Thursday ( 10/11/2018). However, the IMF also stated that global imbalances continue. Some short-term financial risks are also increasing, and medium-term risk is also increasingly prominent. Therefore, the IMF views, although optimism about global financial conditions does not recede, the world cannot be satisfied. Because, some risks continue to haunt global economy and finance. The IMF highlighted the unchanged world economic growth, increasing trade tensions, and several developing countries experiencing capital outflows and pressure on asset values. Based on an analysis of current global financial conditions, the IMF said there was a glimmer of optimism. This is in line with the progress of efforts to create a safer global financial system, seen from the development of standards, practices, and monitoring and regulating tools. But in the future, the IMF stresses the importance of strengthening the resilience of the global financial system by focusing on financial vulnerability. The central bank is seen by the IMF to continue to normalize monetary policy gradually and clearly communicate. The government must also ensure that the reform agenda is completed and implemented. Developing countries must build a bearing on external risks and regulate exchange rates to move flexibly.
