Developments in major non-OECD economies are also evaluated. This issue covers the outlook to end-2009. Together with a wide range of cross-country statistics, the Outlook provides a unique tool to keep abreast of world economic developments. In addition to the themes featured regularly, this issue contains a special chapter entitled Corporate saving and investment: Recent trends and prospects.

The economic expansion remained strong in 2007 and is expected to reach 3% for the second year in a row. Over the projection period above-potential growth is projected to continue, reflecting both robust domestic demand and dynamic export markets. However, labour shortages are likely to persist, partly reflecting population ageing, which will increasingly hamper the expansion of the economy. Indeed, inflation pressures are expected to increase gradually.
