This dataset contains short-term prospects for the global economy in 2017-2018
Project LINK is an international collaborative research group for econometric modelling, coordinated jointly by the Development Policy and Analysis Division of UN/DESA and the University of Toronto. Each year, a UN/DESA Expert Group Meeting on the World Economy, also known as the Project LINK Meeting, is held in October to discuss the world economic outlook. The meeting is participated in by a wide range of experts from academia, economic research institutions and international economic organizations as well as United Nations colleagues from the regional commissions of ECA, ECE, ECLAC, ESCAP and ESCWA. Global Economic Outlook presents the short-term prospects for the global economy in 2016 and 2017, including major risks and policy challenges. The report draws on inputs from the experts of Project LINK, as well as analysis of staff in the Global Economic Monitoring Unit of the Development Policy and Analysis Division (DPAD) of UN/DESA.
