The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has reduced its prognosis for the growth of the global economy this year marginal by 0.1 percentage points to 5.9 percent.
For 2022, the IMF continues to expect growth of 4.9 percent, as in the previous prognosis of July, as the organization declared Tuesday.
Behind the low change in global growth forecast, however, hide significant downgrades for some countries, such as Chief Volkswirt Student Gita Gopinath. "The outlook for the poorer developing countries has diminished significantly," Gopinath wrote with a view to the economic consequences of the pandemic. The short-term prospects of industrialized countries would have worsened, among other things, for problems with global supply chains. The downgrades would be partly made up of better growth prospects of raw material exporters who benefited from higher prices.
