    slightly increased expectations

    The newly released "Latest World Economic Outlook The Latest Forecast" is an updated version of "World Economic Outlook" in April.

    The reports predict that the growth rates of the global economy in 2008 and 2009 were 4.1 % and 3.9 %, respectively. IMF April's global growth rate of this year and Ming and Ming Dynasty was 3.7 % and 3.8 %.

China's economic growth rate will slow down to 9.7 % and 9.8 % this year and next year, respectively, respectively, respectively by 0.4 % and 0.3 % compared with the April expectations, respectively.

    The chief economist Simon Johnson, the chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, said that although the economic development in the first half of 2008 was better than the previous expectations of the IMF, the "global economic recession risk" still exists.

    The economic experts have previously said that if the global economic growth rate falls below 3 %, it will lead to recession.

    In worry of inflation

    IMF predicts that the inflation rate of developed economies in 2008 was 3. 4 %, an increase of 0.8 % compared to the April expectations. Under the dual effect of slow demand and the price of primary products tending to stabilize, inflation will fall in 2009.

    The inflation pressure in the emerging and development economies will increase sharply. In 2008, the inflation rate is expected to be 9.1 %, and the IMF April April Meaning of these economic inflation is 7.4 %.

    The reports that, for developed economies, although the necessity of currency tightening policy has increased, due to the better expectations of inflation and weak economic growth, whether the tightening policy still needs to adopt a tightening policy still needs to still need to adopt a tightening policy. Careful consideration, at the same time, still need to pay close attention to inflation.

    For many emerging economies, especially those economies that are still too fast, we need to implement a tightening monetary policy and strengthen fiscal constraints.

    The report especially pointed out that high oil prices and high grain prices "make some countries in an emergency". Because the price pressure will not be significantly alleviated in the future, some countries, especially low -income countries, are facing. Policy challenges will be how to meet the demand for domestic food, but at the same time ensure that inflation and flower light reserves are not pushed up.
