Head of the ECB: Brexit will affect the rest of the world

Former Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde, who headed the European Central Bank, believes that Britain’s exit from the EU will reduce the welfare of all countries.

The head of the ECB admitted that she was saddened by the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union. Christine Lagarde warned that not only the United Kingdom, but also other partner countries of London would suffer from this.

“This will affect both the UK and certain countries: Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands. Everyone will feel a little decline in terms of welfare. It will affect the rest of the world, "Lagarde said in an interview with CBS.
