Coordinating internationally

Covid-19 is a global challenge and one that can only be overcome if countries work together.

 Seeking to find an aligned approach to macroeconomic policy through international institutions and avoiding unilateral action on withdrawing Covid-19 related stimulus and economic support measures will be key. Many international bodies, including the G7, G20, International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Bank for International Settlements, will have a central role to play in tackling the global impact of this virus.

At such an unprecedented time, keeping global markets open and flowing is fundamental. We are playing our part in making this case and promoting the continuance of international trade flows and regulatory cooperation, working with HM Government, industry and partners across the world.
