Growth momentum continues in emerging markets. The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) and The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) remain in positive territory.

We expect emerging economies as a whole will improve somewhat and their GDP will grow 4 percent this year compared to 3.8 percent last year.
