We’ve started exploring the possibility of launching a digital euro. As Europeans are increasingly turning to digital in the ways they spend, save and invest, we should be prepared to issue a digital euro, if needed. I’m also keen to hear your views on it

The period ahead will be challenging but I am ready, together with my colleagues, to continue supporting Europe’s economies.

Valuable discussions at this week’s #ECBForum  on Central Banking. My thanks to all those who participated and who made this event happen.

In an interview with the @nytimes , I discuss female leadership and how it can help combat climate change. I also reflect on the importance of international cooperation in tackling global issues

Today is my last day as Managing Director of the @IMFNews , an institution with a brain, a wallet—and a heart. During the past eight years, we strengthened the Fund’s commitment to serve its member countries. It is an experience that I will treasure forever.

Extraordinary times require extraordinary action. There are no limits to our commitment to the euro. We are determined to use the full potential of our tools, within our mandate.

Congratulations to my dear friend Sri Mulyani Indrawati of Indonesia for being named Finance Minister of the year by The Banker. Well done. Well deserved.

I am sad to see our British friends leave the EU. We will act within our mandate to ensure Brexit causes as little disruption as possible for the citizens, employers and financial markets of the euro area. We look with confidence towards the future, united as Europeans.
