January 2024 Global Economic Prospects report


Subdued Growth, Multiple Challenges

Raising investment growth is a critical objective for emerging market and developing economies. They have significant investment needs to enable them to deliver sustainable and inclusive growth, cope with climate change, and make progress toward broader development goals. Yet without significant policy action, investment growth in these economies is likely to remain tepid for the remainder of this decade. But it can be boosted. The report offers the first global analysis of what it will take to generate a sustained investment boom, drawing from the experience of many countries over the past seven decades. The presentation will also cover the World Bank’s near-term global outlook, policies, and risks.
