Reuters reveals G20 fin leaders see modest growth pick-up, coronavirus a risk

Reuters revealed that financial leaders of the world’s 20 largest economies (G20) expect a modest pick-up of global growth this year and next, but see the coronavirus epidemic as a downside risk. G20 finance ministers and central bank governors will meet on Feb. 22-23 in Riyadh to discuss the global economy, as China grapples with a virus that has killed more than 2,000 people and forced drastic curbs on travel and commerce.
