In a keynote speech, Domenico SiniscalcoIFF vice president and former Italian economy and finance minister said most countries have poured a lot of liquidity into their economies between 2008 and 2011 to deal with economic crises and again during the global COVID-19 pandemic, and to keep inflation high in developing countries.

Domenico Siniscalco noted that, relatively speaking, inflation in Asia is generally well managed and controlled, largely due to good governance of the economy as a whole.

While rising prices for energy, food and agricultural products can put enormous pressure on economic growth and lead to societal problems, governments will need to take steps to tackle and control inflation, he added.
