Mexico’s Videgaray urges G20 to give U.S. time to OK IMF reforms

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Group of 20 countries should give the United States time to get planned reforms to the International Monetary Fund through Congress and not rush into short-term workarounds, Mexican Finance Minister Luis Videgaray said on Thursday.

Australian Finance Minister Joe Hockey is urging G20 countries to find a way around an impasse in the U.S. Congress on reforms increasing funding and widening representation at the IMF, and options are due to be discussed on Friday morning.
