In this podcast, Annie White and Tim Cheston discuss newly released Growth Lab research - 2027 Global Growth Projections. The projections of annualized growth rates to 2027 are based on the latest 2017 trade data and our newly updated measure of economic complexity, which captures the diversity and sophistication of productive capabilities embedded in a country’s exports. Uganda, Egypt, Myanmar, China, and Vietnam top the list of the fastest-growing economies to 2027, all expected to grow by at least six percent annually. Growth Lab researchers predict that countries who have diversified their production into more complex sectors, like Vietnam and China, are those that will experience the fastest growth in the coming decade.
The Atlas of Economic Complexity is our online tool that can visualize a country’s total trade, track changes over time, and explore growth opportunities for more than a hundred countries worldwide.
