Global Economic Prospects

Primary tabs

The Global Economic Prospects (GEP) is the World Bank’s semi-annual flagship publication on the state of the world economy. In a nutshell, the outlook for the global economy has darkened, amid slowing activity and heightened downside risks. In addition to discussing global and regional prospects, this edition includes several pieces on topical issues facing emerging market and developing economies (EMDEs), including the challenges associated with the presence of large informal sectors, the prospects for continued low inflation, rising debt vulnerabilities in low-income countries, and the implications of large food price spikes for poverty. Global growth is expected to slow to 2.9 percent in 2019. International trade and investment are moderating, trade tensions remain elevated, and financing conditions are tightening. Amid recent episodes of financial stress, growth in emerging market and developing economies has lost momentum and is projected to stall at 4.2 percent this year, with a weaker-than-expected rebound in commodity exporters accompanied by deceleration in commodity importers. Downside risks have become more acute. Financial market pressures and trade tensions could escalate, denting global activity.
