During the past financial year, the IMF’s 189 member countries faced a number of pressing challenges. IMF work on these challenges—slower trade, declining productivity, gender inequality, inclusive growth, and debt management—is a central focus of this IMF 2017 Annual Report How to Jump-Start Growth. Productivity growth—a key driver of living standards—was already in decline in advanced economies before the global financial crisis drove it down sharply. Factors include the waning boom in information and communications technology, partly reflecting an aging workforce, slowing global trade, and weaker human capital accumulation.
