Slowdown in emerging economies will result in sluggish global growth: OECD

Tokyo, Sept. 5 (ANI): An economic assessment report has revealed the global growth will remain lower due to a slowdown in emerging nations.

Deputy Chief Economist Joergen Elmeskov said that gross domestic product of the G7 economies has been improving since shrinking in the last quarter of 2012 and will grow at an annual rate of about 2.5 percent in the second half of this year.

U.S. growth has been calculated at 2.7 percent, while Japan's economy has been forecasted at 2.4 percent and Chinese economy will be at 8.1 percent for October-December.
