The latest World Economic Outlook (WEO) forecasts that the world economy will continue growing at 3.2% during 2024 and 2025. This is an upward revision of 0.1% from the January 2024 WEO Update and 0.3% from the October 2023 WEO, although the pace of expansion remains low by historical standards. A slight acceleration for advanced economies – where growth is expected to rise from 1.6% in 2023 to 1.7 % in 2024 and 1.8% in 2025 – will be offset by a modest slowdown in emerging markets and developing economies from 4.3% in 2023 to 4.2% in both 2024 and 2025. The 3.1% forecast for global growth five years from now is the lowest in decades. To read the IMF’s news release, with a link to the full WEO, go to
