(November 2013) The volume of world trade increased 0.8% in September 2013, following a 0.9% decline in August (initial estimate: -0.8%). Meanwhile, world industrial production rose 0.4% month on month, following a 0.3% rise in August.
(November 2013) The near-term economic outlook for the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan, and Pakistan (MENAP) region has weakened. Diffi cult political transitions and increased regional uncertainties arising from the complex civil war in Syria and the ongoing developments in Egypt weigh on confidence in the oil-importing countries. Meanwhile, domestic supply disruptions and weak global demand are reducing oil production, notwithstanding recent upward pressure on oil prices arising from increased geopolitical risks.
(November 2013) Fumi Kashimada, swissinfo.ch: The new field of soft robotics aims to produce robots made of materials which are more adaptable, flexible and less hazardous than traditional steel and hard plastic. Swiss institutions are at the forefront of research in this novel field.
(November 2013) Improved domestic and global conditions are expected to raise sub-Saharan Africa’s growth rate next year. Africa’s continued success is more than a commodity story. In fact, quite a few economies in the region have become high performers without basing their success on natural resources - - with the help of improved policy making.
(November 2013) Global growth is expected to pick up in 2014-17 as emerging markets implement reforms and developed markets (DM) finish restoring balance sheets. Global growth is set to average 3.5% for 2000-30, well above the 3.0% rate for 1973-2000 and in emerging markets, concerns over the middle-income trap, Asian leverage, ‘broken growth models’ and rising US interest rates appear exaggerated. These challenges can be met, though they will require reforms.
(November 2013) October PMI (purchasing managers' index) data from across the world signalled that the global manufacturing sector maintained its modest recovery at the start of the final quarter. October saw production, new orders and international trade volumes all improving.
(October 2013) World trade fell 0.8% month on month in August 2013, following a 1.8% increase in July while world industrial production climbed 0.3% month on month, following a 0.5% increase in July.
(October 2013) Nations rich in transferable skills have more growth potential than those that merely exploit their natural resources, according to Harvard's Ricardo Hausmann. He has found that Mexico, Zimbabwe and Egypt are well-positioned to grow. Qatar and Brazil are less well-placed, while China risks recession.
(October 2013) London, Hong Kong and Beijing have the most expensive office spaces in the world with strong demand from niche financial and technology sectors driving up rental costs to record highs, a new analysis shows.
(October 2013) Russia needs to embrace a new growth model, complemented by more diversification, higher investment, and a more efficient use of resources, to raise its growth potential, according to new report.
