    Global economic activity to lose pace in 2022

    Global growth will slow this year and next, hampered by elevated inflation, higher interest rates and waning fiscal stimulus. Risks include faster-than-expected monetary tightening, a broadening of the Russia-Ukraine war, energy shortages in Europe, U.S.-China tensions and a steep downturn in China, which is suffering from Covid-19 restrictions and a housing downturn.

    GDP growth will slow in 2022

    Regional growth will soften this year and next on high inflation, tighter monetary policy and weaker momentum abroad. However, recovering tourist inflows, the fading pandemic and high commodity prices by historical standards will provide support. Faster-than-expected monetary tightening, a slowdown in key export market China and sociopolitical unrest are risks.

    GDP growth will grow in 2022

    Regional GDP is expected to grow at a softer pace in 2022 amid a tougher base effect, tighter financial conditions and the global echoes of the war in Ukraine. Elevated price pressures, fueled by higher commodity prices, will likely cap consumer spending. That said, lower unemployment rates and solid remittances should provide some respite.

    Outlook for 2022 remains positive

    The economy should expand at a faster pace this year than in 2021. The relaxation of Covid-19 measures coupled with accumulated savings and tighter labor markets should buttress household spending. Moreover, the tourist sector will benefit from easing border restrictions. Elevated inflation, supply disruptions and China’s renewed lockdowns cloud the outlook.

    GDP growth to lose steam in 2022

    Regional growth will almost halve this year. In China (including Hong Kong), Covid-19 restrictions and the property market downturn will weigh on momentum, spilling over to affecting neighbors in the form of supply disruptions and weaker exports. Beyond China, Covid-19 flare-ups and rising interest rates and inflation could also dampen demand. A prolonged Chinese slowdown is a key risk.

    Economic growth in South-Eastern Europe set to cool in 2022

    Regional economic growth is set to cool this year as the Ukraine war bites, on top of a tougher base of comparison. The war is fueling inflation, worsening supply chains and hurting sentiment. Moreover, international sanctions placed on Russia will weigh on tourism and trade. Lower unemployment rates and easing Covid-19 restrictions should offer some respite, however.

    GDP growth will moderate in 2022

    While regional economic growth will moderate this year, it will remain at a near-decade high. Widening twin deficits and multi-decade high debt-to-GDP ratios in the region due to the fallout from the war in Ukraine are increasingly placing countries in debt distress risk. Additionally, the worst drought in nearly 40 years in the Horn of Africa is a key downside risk .
