    With growing trade tensions driving uncertainty, business investment is being hit and global growth threatened. Ultimately, this will undermine people’s welfare: jobs will be disrupted and consumers’ purchasing power will be hurt.

    The OECD carries out these surveys on around 50 countries every two years. This is the 16th survey of Mexico, but the first to be presented to the new administration.

    Launch of 2019 Economic Survey of Japan

    Japan’s current economic expansion, which began in December 2012, is now the longest in its post-war history; it is not, however, its fastest. We expect GDP to reach ¾ per cent this year and in 2020. The growth of output per capita has accelerated to a pace close to the OECD average and job creation has been robust. Persistent deflation has been replaced with positive, albeit low, inflation.

    IMF WB Spring Meetings- G7 FMCBG: Global Economy

    Our assessment is broadly consistent with that of the IMF and things could actually go worse: a disorderly Brexit, US tariffs on cars, or weaker demand in a large European country could have severe knock-on effects throughout Europe.

    G20 FMCBG Meeting, Session 1: Global Economy

    And risks are biased on the downside. Materialisation of these risks, alone, or combined, could derail the global outlook, all the more that trade and financial integration have made the G20 economies highly interdependant. In this context, I would like to insist on the benefits of policy cooperation

    Launch of the 2019 OECD Economic Survey of Italy

    Today, the global economy is facing serious headwinds. According to our latest Economic Outlook released earlier this month, global growth is projected to further decrease from 3.6% in 2018 to 3.3% in 2019 and to 3.4% in 2020. Trade and investment growth remain sluggish and the large increase in inequality many countries experienced before the crisis persists.

    Launch of the 2019 Economic Survey of Sweden

    Sweden’s economic, environmental, income and gender equality, and well-being achievements are remarkable.

Unemployment has also declined to 6.3% in 2018 (from 8% in 2013), and the employment rate was close to 80% in 2018.
