OECD revidiert globale Prognose

By Duncan Mil

March 10, 2021 - Die globale Wirtschaft wird 2021 stärker als erwartet wachsen, unterstützt durch den Einsatz effektiver Impfstoffe und einen signifikanten Wirtschafts Stimulus in den Vereinigten Staaten, berichtet die OECD

The Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development projected in its latest Interim Economic Outlook that the world economy would grow by 5.6 per cent this year.

The outlook for global growth would be better than current projections if vaccines’ production and distribution accelerate.

“Sizeable risks remain. Faster progress in vaccine deployment in all countries would enable restrictions to be lifted more quickly and enhance confidence and spending,” the report stressed.

The OECD expects U.S. GDP to expand 6.5 per cent this year -- up from minus 3.5 per cent in its December forecast. In the United Kingdom, growth will jump from minus 9.9 per cent to 5.1 per cent.

India leads the forecast for emerging markets, with GDP soaring from minus 7.4 per cent in December to 12.6 per cent in March 2021.
