The head of the U.S. central bank has told Congress that the economy is improving after very slow growth in the first three months of the year. U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s report came soon after the government announced April’s employment numbers. They showed the biggest monthly gain in two years. Ms. Yellen’s comments were hopeful. She said she expects economic activity to expand at a faster rate this year than it did last year. However, the central bank chief remained concerned about employment and international tensions. She said the threat of conflict in other countries and growing financial problems in some developing countries could hurt the world economy. The Federal Reserve, or Fed for short, has been cutting back its efforts to support the economy. The Fed has reduced its government bond-buying activities. Fed purchases went from 85 billion dollars five months ago to about 45 billion dollars now. Bond-buying by the central bank puts more money into the economy. And it has helped keep interest rates near historically low levels. This program, called quantitative easing, is set to end in the last three months of this year. But Janet Yellen said borrowing rates would remain low for, in her words, a considerable amount of time. Earlier, the U.S. Labor Department said the economy added 288,000 jobs in April. That brought the unemployment rate to its lowest level in five years. The employment news balanced the Commerce Department’s announcement that economic growth was very slow in the first three months of the year.
