The International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Annual Report, has painted a grim picture of the global economy as it lowered the global growth forecast for 2019 to 3 percent. IMF Chief Economist, Gita Gopinath said that this was the slowest pace since the global financial crisis, noting that “growth continues to be weakened by rising trade barriers and growing geopolitical tensions.” The report shows advanced economies having slowed down to 1.7 percent and growth in developing markets revised down to 3.9 and 4.6 percent for 2019 and 2020 respectively.
