    Remarks to the United States Council for International Business Roundtable

While a modest upswing is underway ─ we project global GDP growth of 3.3% in 2017 and 3.6% in 2018 ─ the global economy remains stuck in a low growth trap, facing many risks, vulnerabilities, and policy uncertainties. Weak investment and trade continue to weigh on the core drivers of consumption, such as productivity and wage growth.

But we have not yet decisively escaped the low-growth trap. Growth in productivity and wages remains lackluster. Inequality and political tensions are high.
