Over the next three decades, the population will grow mainly in nine countries, among which India, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Pakistan stand out. This list includes the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Egypt and the United States. The global fertility rate averaged 2.5 children in 2019 compared with 3.2 in 1990. The UN expects the rate to decrease to 2.2 by 2050. According to UnderSecretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs Liu Zhenmin, population often tends to grow at the fastest pace in the world’s poorest countries, which makes it difficult to fight against poverty, food shortage and inequality, and to make improvements in education and healthcare. The fact that workable-age population (aged 25-64) has been rising at the highest pace provides new possibilities for economic growth in EM economies, Liu Zhenmin added.

Eurozone PMI gains momentum in June

According to preliminary IHS Markit data, the Eurozone’s consolidated PMI improved from 51.8 in May to 52.1 in June. The index again grew on the back of the services sector, with the services PMI rising from 52.9 to 53.4. Even though the manufacturing PMI grew from 47.4 to 47.8, the index remained below the 50 threshold. In Germany, the consolidated PMI remained at the May level of 52.6, and France’s indicator rose from 51.2 to 52.9. The Eurozone’s economic growth driver has increased moderately in June. The consolidated PMI continues rising from the lows seen earlier in the year and this leads IHS Markit to believe that the economy has reached the lowest level. At the same time, the pace of recovery remains weak, and current PMI data imply that the Eurozone economy will expand only 0.2% in the second quarter, Markit said in a press release..
