This June 2009 issue of OECD's twice-yearly OECD Economic Outlook provides analysis of recent economic developments and economic projections for OECD and major non-OECD countries through the end of 2010. Its comprehensive statistical annex is a useful reference tool for international economic comparisons. This issue finds that a recovery is in sight but that damage from the crisis is likely to be long-lasting.

English French, German



The fall in output accelerated at the beginning of 2009 and activity is expected to continue falling throughout 2009, though at a slowing pace. The annual decline in GDP growth is projected to amount to around 6% this year. Activity will slowly pick up in the course of 2010. Unemployment is projected to rise sharply, and firms have already reduced their labour input significantly by reducing working hours.
