Report summary

Global economic growth is forecast to accelerate to 2.7% this year, up from 2.1% in 2013. The three largest economies in the developed world, the US, Eurozone and Japan, are forecast to grow together for the first time since 2010. Although emerging markets stand to gain from stronger growth in developed world consumption, boosting demand for their exports, the tapering of US quantitative easing continues to pose serious challenges for many.
