In 2023, the trade growth forecast is up 1% from last October due to its flexible Covid-19 measures.
In 2023, at market exchange rates, the GDP will grow by 2.4%, although projections for trade and GDP growth are below the averages for the past 12 years.
The effects of Covid-19 and the high geopolitical tensions impacted trade and output in 2022, and this is likely to be the case in 2023 as well.
Trade is the strength of the global economy, but in 2023, it will be under stress from external factors.
As a result, it is important for governments to avoid trade discontinuity and refrain from obstacles to trade.
However, in 2024, global trade growth should bounce to 3.2%, as global GDP growth soars to 2.6%. This assessment is more doubtful due to geopolitical pressures, food supply upsets, and unexpected effects of monetary tightening.
