Facebook chat on mid-year WESP 2014 update


12 June, 2014

A Facebook chat will be held on 12 June from 10 am to 11 am EDT, to discuss the latest updates on global growth and the risks and uncertainties facing the world economy identified in the recently released mid-year update of the World Economic Situation and Prospects 2014.

Economists from the Global Economic Monitoring Unit of UN DESAĺs Division for Development Policy and Analysis will be on hand to answer questions about their latest report, the World Economic Situation and Prospects as of mid-2014 launched on 21 May. The global growth trajectory was modified to 2.8 per cent in 2014 and 3.2 per cent in 2015, slightly lower than previously forecast in the World Economic Situation and Prospects 2014 released in January.

The recovery in the developed economies will continue, but the growth prospects for the developing economies and the economies in transition have been revised downward, largely because of challenging economic and/or political conditions in a number of countries in these two latter groups.
