The global recovery is set to decelerate amid diminished policy support, continued COVID-19 flare-ups, and lingering supply bottlenecks. In contrast to that in advanced economies, output in emerging market and developing economies will remain markedly below pre-pandemic trends in the near-term. The outlook is clouded by various downside risks, including new COVID-19 outbreaks, the possibility of de-anchored inflation expectations, and financial stress in a context of record-high debt levels. These challenges underscore the importance of national policy responses and strengthened global cooperation to promote a green, resilient, and inclusive recovery path. Join CGD and the World Bank for an informed discussion of these issues and necessary policy responses after the release of the World Bank’s 2022 January Global Economic Prospects report.
