Trading Up: With Global Growth Finally on the Rise, Is the Trade Recovery Sustainable?


February 2018 | Research Report

Even as 2018 global growth appears to be improving, the trade recovery may not be sustainable in the medium-term. One reason is that global GDP growth is projected to be less than 3 percent in the decade ahead. Other factors that previously lifted trade growth rates to unprecedented heights are unlikely to return in full force while still others may constrain growth in the long term. This report, which introduces a new dataset tool developed by The Conference Board, examines the complex nature of modern-day global trade and the importance of evaluating strategic operations decisions using current data.
