Description
1. Wide open of IMFC news conference 2. Mid photographers and journalists 3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Christine Lagarde, IMF Managing Director “From many corners as well, there are concerns about, in a way, non-directly trade-related issues, which impact on trade. And, that has to do with the adequate protection of intellectual property, the level playing field of all operators involved in trade. And, we all need to be cognizant of those issues. And, my key concern as head of the IMF is to help in the process of resolving those issues before they escalate to a point where it would hamper growth stability.” 4. Wide photographers and reporters 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lesetja Kganyago, IMFC Chair “Trade tensions are not to the benefit of anyone. There can never – if there is a trade conflict -- there could never be winners. We could all only be losers. And, it is within that context that it is important that as a global community, we keep trade open, that we work within the multilateral system.” 6. UPSOUND: (English) Reporter asking question “You know, there’s this African proverb that talks about elephants, that when elephants fight, it’s the grass that gets trampled. And, I wonder if you use any African proverbs in your communications.” 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Christine Lagarde, IMF Managing Director “I have no idea whether it’s an African proverb or not. But, my recollection is that it goes something like, ‘Trust grows at the speed of a coconut tree and falls at the speed of a coconut.’” 8.
