Since autumn 2009, the world economy has been recovering from the deep recession thanks to the strong stimulus of expansionary fiscal and monetary policies. This year it will grow by 4 percent in real terms (2009: –1 percent). However, the pace of the recovery differs substantially between regions and countries. In Asia foreign trade and industrial production already exceed the pre-crisis level by a noticeable margin. The Latin American emerging economies, too, are growing fast due to strong global demand for commodities. In the USA a vibrant economic recovery is under way owing to an expansionary economic policy and the rebuilding of inventories. However, economic activity in these regions has weakened since the beginning of 2010.
