On the last leg of her Asia tour in Thailand, International Monetary Fund Chief, Christine Lagarde, acknowledged worries among Asian nations over possible impacts from the continuing economic crisis in the Eurozone. Unlike what was expected in 2010, the IMF chief said the economic recovery has been "tepid and worrisome".

Christine Lagarde, IMF Managing Director, said, "Sovereign debt crisis as expanded into questioning about the future of the Eurozone and the viability of the monetary union. And that's clearly a risk that looms and lurks in the background for many Asian policy makers, and for many policy makers around the world."
