Washington: International Monetary Fund (IMF) said it looked forward to working with the next US administration, but declined to comment on any specific policies US President-elect Donald Trump has promised.
“The IMF looks forward to working with the next US administration to help the challenges facing the US economy and the global economy,” Xinhua news agency quoted IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice as saying on Thursday.
The spokesperson also noted that IMF expected an excellent relationship with the US authorities would continue in the future.
“It’s too early to speculate (on any specific policies). We need to see how the new administration defines its policy priorities and related actions once it takes office ,” said Rice.
During the presidential campaign, Trump has promised to bring back lost manufacturing jobs by re-negotiating free trade deals and levying hefty tariffs.
