The International Monetary Fund says the global economy is strengthening but warned of rising risks in emerging economies. The acceleration has been mainly fueled by stronger growth in advanced economies like the United States and the United Kingdom, but the IMF says developing nations have not fared as well. That’s particularly true in Russia, Brazil and South Africa - where growth is likely to be slower than the IMF’s previous forecasts. Mil Arcega has more for VOA.
