The new managing director of the International Monetary Fund Kristalina Georgieva warned Tuesday of an economic slowdown in 2019 in 90% of the world during her first speech at the helm of the multilateral organization.

"In 2019, we expect slower growth in nearly 90 percent of the world. The global economy is now in a synchronized slowdown," Georgieva said at the IMF headquarters in Washington.
