Abstract

The world economy is still growing relatively strongly with a slight slowing in the US but as Japan has performed above expectations this has compensated for the US. Non-Japan Asia and China are also performing well. The Euro Area is showing signs that 2006 and 2007 will be better years as there are consistent signs of a pick-up in growth.
