That includes President Donald Trump´s imposition of tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods, as well as on aluminum, steel and other products worldwide. The IMF projections don't take into account Trump's threat to expand the tariffs to effectively all of the more than $500 billion in goods the USA bought from China previous year.

The IMF also predicted that Bangladesh's consumer prices would reach 5.8 percent at the end of this year and 6.1 percent next year. Less than 1 percent of the nation's more than 200 million people file tax returns and its exports, including textiles, lag the region.

Core inflation, which excludes volatile items such as energy, will vary from country to country, it said.
