The 2 per cent inflation target  came up repeatedly throughout the conference, 

with economists suggesting that it may need to be adapted to fit a more fractured global economy.

Fed in 2020 announced it would target inflation at a 2 per cent average over time, in order to make up for past periods of undershooting the target.

Many economists advocated for a 3 per cent inflation target.
