US concern about currency issues
The US remains concerned about currency issues. The Treasury’s twice-yearly currency report may have reached the same conclusion as previous findings but “the details” and the tougher criticism of China were different.
The Trump administration also expected the IMF to be more vigilant about global currency swings.
At present, the fund and Athens’ European creditors are in a race against time to broker a deal that would bring the IMF fully on board in the aid programme. The US was continuing to encourage the IMF to discuss its participation.
