Is the tide turning? Global activity strengthened since mid-2013 but downside risks remain. In advanced economies, brakes to growth, from the pace of fiscal consolidation to high private debt, are slowly loosening. Stronger growth in advanced economies is helping emerging market and developing economies. However, risks of low inflation in the euro area, challenges with normalizing monetary policies in the U.S., and increased financial and capital flow volatility for emerging economies remain key concerns. Against this backdrop, cross-border spillovers may pose greater risks and new policy challenges are arising. The discussion will focus on how policymakers could collaborate globally to better manage the risks and durably boost jobs and growth.
