"We know that there's usually a relationship between growth and jobs. It's not always a tight relationship. There's always an issue about the distribution, where the jobs are being created, what sectors, what countries and some of the disconnect there can be," she said. "Mismatch can be a problem, but I do think we are going to see job creation go hand in hand with global growth."
One way to boost global growth is a renewed focus on infrastructure, and Mann stressed there was a "significant deterioration" in infrastructure around the world.
"Every country needs to have more bridges, or rebuild bridges and ports," she said.

Australia, which is currently presiding over the G-20 summit, recently announced its commitment to building a global infrastructure hub in Sydney, in an attempt to boost global investment in the sector.
The hub is aimed at enhancing collaboration between the private sector, governments and international bodies, and is hoped to add $2 trillion in infrastructure capacity by 2030.
"There are a lot of infrastructure projects that are not well done, particularly if they are 100 percent government-done. We know that sometimes they don't go to the right sectors or the right areas of the country," Mann added. "So the infra hub should give us a lot of best practice."
