JETRO Releases its 2010 Global Trade and Investment Report
In 2009, the world economy recorded its first contraction in the post-war era, due
to the global financial crisis. However, real GDP growth rate for 2010 is expected
to rebound to 4.6%, according to July 2010 IMF estimates. This turnaround has been
driven by Asian countries, especially China and India, where economic growth rates
showed relatively smaller declines in 2009. Among advanced economies, the US is
recovering quickly, while economies in Europe are recovering slowly due to fiscal
woes in the region.
