Emerging market economies have continued to weather well several external shocks over the past year, including rising economic nationalism and waning support for global trade in advanced economies. But these economies are likely to face significant challenges going forward. In particular, while prospects for reflation in advanced economies, including through fiscal stimulus in the United States, could provide some support for the global economy in the short run, tighter U.S. monetary policy, a stronger U.S. dollar, heightened uncertainty and volatility in the euro area, a rise in economic nationalism and trade protectionism, and a rollback of financial regulation could cloud the medium-term growth outlook for emerging market economies. The seminar brings together policymakers to discuss the implications of these economic challenges for emerging markets economies.
