Portuguese-speaking countries assess global economic outlook with the OECD Development Centre


Africa and emerging Asia are expected to experience robust growth in the medium term, partly thanks to the steady rise in domestic demand. Their performance contrasts with Latin America’s economic slowdown and Europe’s uncertain recovery. Drawing from its recent Economic Outlook reports on Asia and Africa, the OECD Development Centre will help the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (CPLP) assess these trends and reflect on policy options at their Conference of Heads of State and Government in Dili, Timor Leste, on 24 July.


In partnership with the CAMOES Institute, the OECD Development Centre provides Portuguese-language versions of the African Economic Outlook, as well as a special regional edition of the Outlook for African Portuguese-speaking countries.


Members of the CPLP are Angola, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Timor Leste.
