IMF World Economic Outlook October 2017 Update

IMF confirms economic activity is strengthening

The International Monetary Fund or IMF publishes the “World Economic Outlook” or WEO report biannually, in April and September or October, and it publishes two updates in January and July. The WEO report consists of key projections for major economies and includes the outlook for economic growth, inflation, and risks.

The latest report was released in October, and the IMF projected that the global economy is expected to grow to 3.6% in 2017 and 3.7% in 2018.

Key amendments to the April report

The October WEO update included broad-based upward revisions for economic activity in the Eurozone (VGK), Japan (EWJ), emerging Asia, emerging Europe, and Russia. The United States (VTI) and United Kingdom’s (EWU) economic outlooks were revised downward but offset by projected growth in other economies. The IMF said the recovery in the global economy isn’t complete, as growth remains weak in many countries, and inflation (TIP) is lagging in developed economies.

The IMF said short-term risks are broadly balanced, but medium-term risks are still tilted to the downside.
