At today’s Euro Summit, I discussed the economic outlook with European leaders.   Russia’s unjustified war on Ukraine continues to affect our economy and the outlook is still surrounded by high uncertainty. However the conditions are in place for the economy to continue to grow.

It was good to meet with @eucopresident Charles Michel ahead of this week’s European Council. We discussed current economic developments in the euro area. Recent challenges have shown how crucial it is that Europe stays united and works together.

Lagarde: High inflation is a challenge. That’s why we are taking further steps to normalise monetary policy by: ➡️ ending net asset purchases as of 1 July ➡️ intending to raise our key interest rates at our July monetary policy meeting, and again in September

Lagarde: Inflation has risen further, reaching 8.1% in May, reflecting in part the rise in energy and food prices. We have revised our projections significantly and see inflation remaining elevated for some time, declining towards our target in 2024.

Lagarde: Euro area activity is being dampened by high energy costs, supply disruptions and greater uncertainty. At the same time, services activity is supporting growth, and the sector’s recovery is expected to strengthen over the coming months.

I was humbled to be awarded an honorary degree by the London School of Economics earlier this week. Thank you so much for this prestigious honour!   Receiving the degree from my former colleague and current @LSEnews Director Minouche Shafik made the moment even more special.
