[ECB policy may be greatly influenced by the Federal Reserve Lagarde will be cautious] ECB policy may be greatly influenced by the Federal Reserve. ECB officials face not only the strength of the euro to a two-year high, but also the driving force behind it-the Fed periodically tolerates accelerating inflation, a policy the ECB needs to emulate. Earlier this year, the ECB proposed to review monetary policy, but then focused on dealing with the epidemic, the assessment work stagnated, and now the Fed's action may provide some impetus to the ECB. Moreover, with only two months to go before the US election, events in the US are likely to be the focus of the ECB's attention. Some analysts believe Ms Lagarde has more reason to maintain the cautious tone of the July meeting at the September meeting, as there are signs that the economic recovery in the eurozone has slowed, COVID-19 cases are rising and inflation is falling sharply.

[IMF: epidemic may cause low-income developing countries to face a "lost decade"] the International Monetary Fund recently pointed out that the economies of low-income developing countries have suffered severe internal and external shocks as a result of the epidemic.

IMF predicts that economic growth in low-income developing countries is likely to stagnate this year, compared with 5 per cent growth in 2019. Without the continued support of the international community, the epidemic is likely to erase the achievements made in poverty reduction in these countries over the past decade.

Maha Ahmed, deputy representative of the agency of the United Nations World Food Program in China, said on Sept. 6 that 70 million to 100 million people are expected to fall into extreme poverty this year because of the bottom impact of the global COVID-19 epidemic.
