New Delhi, India

The 2017 World Economic Situation and Prospects report issued by the United Nations Department for Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), Development Policy and Analysis Division, assesses the current developments and outlook for the global economy. Facing major headwinds and heightened uncertainty, the world economy remains mired in a prolonged cycle of subdued global growth. In addition to analyzing the present situation, the report will look at measures that can lift global growth and support sustainable development, including a more targeted policy mix that is based on sound policy analysis and more effective policy coordination at the domestic, regional and global level.
The report was launched by ESCAP in New Delhi on Wednesday 18 January 2017.
