The consensus among major forecasters is that GDP growth among the major industrialised countries will remain sluggish throughout this year but will pick up in 1993. The IMF and OECD have very similar forecasts; the former indicates industrial countries' growth of 1.8% this year followed by 3.3% next, while the OECD forecasts growth for member countries of 1.8% this year and 3.0% in 1993. Additional economic data are considered.
