We expect global growth in 2017 improve slightly from growth in 2016. The US keeps growing at 2% to 2.5% with low inflation. The euro zone is now recoverng growth at a modest pace, but its outlook is still uncertain for the medium-term, as Greece and Italy face problems with their fiscal and banking debts. Moreover, as the Fed incrases rates, the ECB has signalled it must follow. China's growth should continue to weaken after the Communist Party summit next November, as it must rein in excessive credit and bad loans.
