World Economic Outlook

According to this edition of the World Economic Outlook global
growth is projected to slow to 3.1% in 2016 before recovering to
3.4% in 2017. The forecast, revised down by 0.1% for 2016 and
2017 relative to April, reflects a more subdued outlook for advanced
economies following the June UK vote in favour of leaving the
European Union (Brexit) and weaker-than-expected growth in the
United States.
