World Economic Outlook Update - January 2011

The World Economic Outlook Update (2011) shows that as the global economic recovery continues, activity has moderated less than expected in advanced economies, but growth remains subdued, unemployment is still high, and renewed stresses in the euro area periphery are contributing to downside risks. In many emerging economies, activity remains buoyant, inflation pressures are emerging, and there are now some signs of overheating, driven in part by strong capital inflows. Most developing countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, are also growing strongly. Global output is projected to expand by 4½ percent in 2011, an upward revision of about ¼ percentage point relative to the October 2010 World Economic Outlook (WEO). Click here to access the report.
