This report presents a comprehensive overview of recent and longer-term trends in productivity levels and growth in OECD countries, accession countries, key partners and some G20 countries. It includes measures of labour productivity, capital productivity and multifactor productivity, as well as indicators of international competitiveness.


Executive summary

Global economic growth remains solid and broad-based, even though the pace has eased in recent periods. But while the upturn is set to persist into 2018, it has been modest, partly reflecting continued relatively weak labour productivity growth in most countries. Among OECD economies, in the United Kingdom and the United States, and more recently in Mexico, Spain and Italy, the recovery in GDP growth has been largely sustained by increasing employment.
