    The global GDP growth outlook deteriorated this month; FocusEconomics panelists now expect the global economy to expand 2.7% in 2014, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s projection. The deterioration was driven by lower growth projections for the BRIC economies, the Euro area and Japan, which more than offset an upward revision to the United Kingdom’s forecast. Panelists also cut their projections for next year by 0.1 percentage points and now expect the global economy to grow 3.3%.

    The outlook for ex-Japan Asia was stable for the fourth consecutive period this month. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists left their growth forecasts at 6.2% for this year.

    Panelists revised down the 2014 GDP outlook for the Euro area for a second consecutive month and now expect the Euro area economy to expand 0.8% in 2014, which is 0.1 percentage points below last month's projection.

The forecasts for five economies (Greece, Ireland, Malta, the Netherlands and Slovenia) were revised upward, while panelists left the outlook for the remaining 5 economies unchanged.

    Growth forecasts for Eastern Europe deteriorated this month as panelists turned pessimistic yet again.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists have now cut their projections for the region by 0.2 percentage points over the previous month. Not only has this completely wiped out last month’s upgrade, but the projected 1.3% GDP growth marks a new low for the region.
