IMF's Georgieva says China, other big creditors must work to prevent debt "explosion"

·1 min read

WASHINGTON, Sept 13 (Reuters) - China and other big creditors have a responsibility to prevent the debt problems facing emerging market and low-income countries from exploding, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalian Georgieva said on Tuesday.

Georgieva, speaking at an event hosted by the Center for Global Development, said 25% of emerging market and 60% of low-income countries were in or near debt distress.

"My message to the large creditors, to China, the private sectors ... is that the larger your share is, the bigger your responsibility," she said. "It is in your interest as creditors to prevent a problem from exploding."
