TF-1: Macroeconomics, Trade, and Livelihoods: Policy Coherence and International Coordination

The current global scenario requires coordinated efforts by the G20 countries to deal with monetary, fiscal, trade, and investment policies to ensure employment and better livelihoods. The G20 and international financial institutions may aim at a monetary policy that could strike a balance between liquidity, interest rate, and exchange rate to control macroeconomic imbalances. Fiscal measures need to be designed for coherent and balanced economic policies that stimulate growth. With macroeconomic stability, recovery of trade may open up opportunities for MSMEs, which would augment employment and livelihoods. Hence, it is important to discuss ways of promoting better coherence within countries on monetary and fiscal policies as well as stronger international coordination among nations, and also suggest ways to make them responsive to economic imperatives. The task force will also examine the interrelationship between trade and investment policy and global supply chains, and how they are impacted and shaped by national macro-economic policies.

  • Monetary Synchronisation and Fiscal Space

  • Economic Growth, Employment, and Livelihoods
