Growth Prospects and Fiscal Requirements over the Long Term

Growth of the present non-OECD will continue to outpace that of the present OECD, but the difference will narrow substantially over coming decades. From over 7% per year recently, non-OECD growth may decline to around 4½ per cent per annum in 2030. Until around 2020, China is set to have the highest growth rate among major countries, but could be then surpassed by India.
