Globalization is the key to successful global development.”

Ulrich Maurer
President
Swiss Federation

In April 2019, President Maurer of Switzerland signed a memorandum of understanding with China to cooperate on trade and financing for projects of the Belt and Road Initiative. But with its robust growth of the 2000s tempering, China will face a number of hurdles from developing more efficient financial markets to navigating the renminbi’s position in global trade. As the architects of the BRI proclaim the advantages for development, considerable adjustment issues lie ahead for the world economy as the country’s increasing clout receives attention. With escalating conflicts between major trading partners, cross-border investments have cooled and World Bank reports have projected overall economic growth to slow to 2.9% across the globe.

Economic activity in the eurozone has continued leisurely while near-term growth in the United States will be balanced between tax reform, increased spending, and low unemployment numbers. Eastern Europe as well as gas-rich Russia and Central Asia are anticipated to slow. Decreased industrial output in Turkey in addition to a credit crisis point to currency stagnation. Regional growth in the MENA region is nonetheless projected to rise to 1.9% with growth among oil exporters expected to be stable at a rate of 2.6%. Emerging market and developing economies continue to feel pressure across their financial markets, yet while the recovery in EMDE activity is stalling, growth among commodity importers has been balanced. Latin American economies are projected to advance to a rate of 1.7% this year, supported primarily by consumer spending, with Brazil’s anticipated growth at 2.2% and Mexico expected to keep growing at 2%.

Despite the downtrend in international trade and tighter external financing conditions, domestic factors like policy reform are anticipated to bolster growth. Growth across Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to be strong at 3.4%, predicated on policy improvements and infrastructure investments, while South Africa is projected to accelerate modestly to a 1.3% pace, constrained by limited domestic demand and government spending. While the Asia-Pacific region remains one of the world’s fastest-growing developing regions, growth is expected to moderate to 6%, assuming a gradual tightening of financial conditions beyond the region and broadly stable commodity prices. Growth in China is expected to slow to 6.2% this year as domestic and external rebalancing continue. Other economies in the region are expected to grow at 5.2% as consumer demand offsets the negative impact of slowing exports: Indonesia’s growth is expected to hold steady at 5.2% while the expansion of the Thai economy is expected to slow to 3.8%. The economies of South Asia are expected to grow to 7.1%, underpinned by strengthening investment and consumption, with the Indian economy forecasted to expand 7.3%.

Disputes over trade deficits between the US and China as well as the EU continue to affect everything from equity markets to research and development. Leading tech firms are also taking a hit from declining sales, privacy concerns, and possibilities of regulatory oversight. The potential for a macroeconomic shock could likely increase from a rise in capital costs and poor governance, further stalling growth and resulting in greater market fragmentation. On the other hand, new avenues towards growth could open with increased roles for fiscal councils, development banks, and sovereign wealth funds. ★

Trade Negotiations, Interest Rates and the Impact on Global & Regional Economic Growth

The Global Academy of Business and Economic Research is organizing its seventeenth international conference in Orlando this September at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort. The conference will examine the potential responses to these challenges and more. Academics, Ph.D candidates, post-graduate students, and business practitioners are invited to present abstracts, full-length papers, research-in-progress and case studies at regular and special sessions at the conference.

Researchers in academia including post-graduate students, in business, from NGOs or the public sector, who wish to present their latest findings in integrative economics and business, value engagement with an interdisciplinary audience of experts from around the world, seek to learn from and with peers in employing the latest research tools and strategies, or who have an interest in advancing evidence-based business and economic research, are all encouraged to submit proposals and have an opportunity to present at our upcoming conference. By participating in our upcoming conference in September, you will be able to share your latest findings with a group of international economists and professionals, engage, be challenged, and delve deeply into your research, network with potential collaborators, employers, and mentors, build your CV, be eligible for the Outstanding Paper Award for each track area in which you submit a paper, have the opportunity to publish your work, and gain recognition as an expert in your focus area.

In its recent report, the World Bank has the following predictions for global and regional economies. Global growth is expected to slow to 2.9% in 2019. International trade and investment has cooled as tensions around trade policies have elevated and financing conditions have tightened. Amid signs of financial stress, growth in emerging market and developing economies has lost momentum and is projected to stall at 4.2% this year, with a rebound in commodity exports that is weaker than expected and relative deceleration in commodity imports. Downside risks have become more acute. The recovery in EMDE activity has stalled, with growth expected at 4.2 percent in 2019, much weaker than previous projections. The cyclical upswing in regions with many commodity exporters has lost momentum, partly reflecting a substantial slowdown among larger economies, and is projected to stabilize over the next couple of years. Growth among commodity importers is solid but has decelerated. Across all regions, risks to the outlook are increasingly tilted to the downside.

For Latin America and the Caribbean nations, growth is projected to advance to a 1.7 percent pace this year, primarily from a boost in consumer spending. In Mexico, against the backdrop of potential shifts in trade policies, the prospect of a continued slump in investment is expected to keep growth at a moderate 2 percent. In South America, states like Argentina is forecast to contract by 1.7 percent as deep fiscal consolidation leads to unemployment followed by lower consumption and investment. On the other hand, if fiscal reforms are quickly put in place and consumption and investing can outweigh cutbacks in government spending, Brazil is forecast to expand 2.2 percent. Across the Atlantic, growth has slowed from the eurozone across to Eastern Europe into Russia and Central Asia, the Asia-Pacific region remains among the world’s fastest-growing. Emerging market and developing economies (EMDEs) have experienced financial market pressures. Decreased industrial output as well as a credit crisis point to currency stagnation in Turkey, and while sanctions in Iran will press its economy by 3.6%, overall growth among oil exporters is expected to be stable, with Gulf Arab states projected for a rate of 2.6% up from 2% last year.

Market volatility in equity markets across the globe has impacted everything from currencies to commodities and financial assets which recently were sensible investments have become vulnerable. Tech firm stocks have taken a major hit with increased privacy concerns and the possibility of regulatory oversight, causing a further slump in major indexes. With US monetary policy having increased interest rates, the potential for a macroeconomic shock could build from continued trade tensions, poor governance, and a rise in capital costs, leading to even slower growth and greater market fragmentation. On the other hand, the rise of new development banks, fiscal councils, sovereign wealth funds, and artificial intelligence within the Internet-Of-Things can generate a new wave of growth in the global economy.
