    The OECD said the global economy will expand just 2.2% in 2023, down from a previous forecast of 2.8%. The new projection for the year means output will be $2.8 trillion less than officials had predicted at the end of 2021. The Paris-based organisation slashed its GDP forecasts for all but one of the G-20, with only Indonesia featuring a moderately higher outlook. Europe is expected to be the hardest hit with the OECD now expecting Germany, the region’s biggest economy, to contract 0.7% next year. The US economy is projected to grow just 0.5% next year. In China, growth will slow to 3.2% this year amid repeated Covid-19 shutdowns and a crisis in the property market, “but policy support could help growth recover in 2023,” the OECD said.

    Hong Kong's trade performance worsened last month, with the value of total exports sliding 14.3% year-on-year, the most since the start of the pandemic in early 2020. That marked the fourth straight month of decline and outpaced the drop of nearly 9% in July. Exports to major economies plunged, plummeting 54% to the UK, almost 25% to Japan and off 20% to the mainland. Imports, meanwhile, fell by 16.3% from a year earlier.

    The Federal Reserve has raised US interest rates by 75bps and signalled that there are more rate hikes to come. It’s the third consecutive 0.75 percentage point move and takes the federal funds rate up to a range of 3%-3.25%, the highest since early 2008. In the so-called “dot plot” of FOMC members' expectations of where interest rates will be in the future, policymakers anticipate they will keep hiking until the funds rate reaches 4.4% by the end of this year and hits a terminal rate of 4.6% in 2023. They will then remain at that level until 2024. 

    The Asian Development Bank cut its 2022 growth forecast for developing Asia on Wednesday, citing China’s lockdowns, the war in Ukraine and rising global inflation. The multilateral lender now expects growth in the region to be just 4.3%, compared to 5.2% forecast previously. It also downgraded its forecast for 2023 to 4.9%, down from 5.3%. The bank cut its forecast for growth in China this year from its previous forecast of 5% to just 3.3%. The report noted that it’s the first time in three decades that China will grow at a slower rate than the rest of emerging Asia.
