WASHINGTON -- Widening rifts in global trade and investment could persist longer than a few years and hurt the world's ability to handle inflation and other challenges, the International Monetary Fund's Gita Gopinath told Nikkei recently.

These changes will "make it harder for us to achieve our common goals, in terms of mitigating climate change, in terms of technological adoption, like artificial intelligence and all of those areas," said Gopinath, who serves as IMF first deputy managing director.
