    Global economic growth is still seen dipping this year

    Despite better-than-expected Q1 GDP outturns for many countries, global growth is still seen dipping this year due to softer dynamics among developed economies. However, the global economy should be supported by tight labor markets and accommodative monetary policy. The U.S.-China trade dispute is the key downside risk.

    Latin America is seen growing weakly this year

    The region is seen growing weakly this year and prospects were cut for a third month running in June. Trade tensions and a slowing global economy are seen stunting export growth broadly. On top of this, Argentina is in the midst of a tough economic adjustment; fiscal and political challenges weigh on Brazil’s outlook; and uncertainty is high in Mexico owing to tension with the U.S.

    Central America & Caribbean regional economy to shift into a higher gear in 2019

    Regional economic activity is seen shifting into a higher gear this year, mainly owing to a recovery in Puerto Rico. Remittances and tourism inflows should remain robust on a sound U.S. labor market, which should boost household incomes in turn. U.S. immigration policy uncertainty, exposure to extreme weather events and the crisis in Nicaragua pose key downside risks, however.

    Growth in the ASEAN economy is expected to moderate in 2019

    Regional economic growth should moderate this year against the backdrop of a more challenging external environment owing to lingering trade tensions. Easing momentum in China, a key economic partner of the region, further clouds the outlook. More positively, resilient domestic demand, foreign investment flows and infrastructure spending should provide some stimulus.

    East Asian economies are expected to decelerate in 2019

    Growth in East Asia is set to decelerate this year as export-driven economies will feel the pain from weaker global demand amid escalating trade tensions between China and the United States. Economies in East Asia are also highly susceptible to a Chinese economic slowdown.

    The economy is seeing slowing in 2019

    Flash estimates revealed that growth surpassed expectations in the first quarter of the year, reviving after last year’s sharp slowdown. Although a breakdown by components is not yet available, solid household spending likely supported the result as consumers benefitted from a tightening labor market. In addition, a relatively mild winter may have bolstered the construction sector, while the manufacturing sector is expected to have improved somewhat as one-off issues fade. That said, monthly data still points to soft activity overall and it remains to be seen if momentum will keep pace in Q2. Economic sentiment dropped for the 10th consecutive month in April and the composite PMI continued to point to a two-speed economy in May. Meanwhile, the European parliamentary elections revealed increasing divisions within the union. The vote suggests that the European project will likely remain stuck: with little appetite to move forward or backwards with integration and reforms.

    Central & Eastern Europe growth set to moderate in 2019

    Although regional growth will moderate this year, largely due to weakness in the Eurozone and a mature business cycle, it will remain solid. Robust domestic demand will propel the expansion, spurred by strong wage and credit growth, supportive EU investment funding and expansionary fiscal and monetary policies.

    Economic activity in Middle East and North Africa to deteriorate on the back of elevated geopolitical risks

    Growth prospects for the Middle East and North Africa are deteriorating on the back of elevated geopolitical risks, weak global demand and severe oil production cuts. Moreover, escalating trade tensions between China and the United States threaten to hit global economic growth, which could, in turn, reduce demand for the black gold.

    Growth prospects slashed for the third successive month in July

    Growth prospects for the region were slashed for the third successive month in July, which is now seen growing only marginally above 2018’s modest upturn. This is mainly reflective of expected weak growth in South Africa and the slow recoveries in Angola and Nigeria. Global commodity price swings, extreme weather events and domestic policy uncertainty cloud the outlook.
