New Delhi, Oct 20 (IANS) Finance Minister Nirmala SItharaman has said a calibrated and balanced approach to deploying a mix of fiscal, monetary and structural measures by countries can help achieve their growth potential and asked the IMF to evolve a policy framework to assess the vulnerability of fragile economies to capital flows.

"International Monetary Fund (IMF) should provide solutions that are specific to important growth geographies to help alleviate the current conundrum.
