This monthly webcast provides the latest insights from TCB’s Economics Team on the growth performance of major emerging markets, especially the outlook for China, India, Brazil and Mexico as well as Southeast Asia.
In July's Economics Watch, we will also provide an overview of global economic growth scenarios for the next five years. As the global economy is entering a new transitional phase after the 2008 financial crisis and is going through a period of significant uncertainty, opportunities and challenges are multifold particularly for the emerging economies. In this webcast, we will outline economic growth scenarios for major emerging economies (Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Southeast Asia) as well as a global scenario, all of which present plausible alternative future conditions that corporations may face in these economies.
