IMF: Pick up in global economic activity presents a window of opportunity
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) upgraded its forecast for global economic growth for 2017 and 2018, citing resilient economic activity worldwide. The global economy today is far different from early last year, when the world was grappling with heightened geopolitical uncertainty and financial market volatility. Currently, the global economy is in much better shape, with increasing investments, rising industrial output, improving trade, and robust business sentiments underpinning healthy economic growth in most countries. Hence, considering the broad-based acceleration in economic activity, the IMF raised its global growth forecast to 3.6% for 2017 and 3.7% for 2018, well above the 3.2% growth witnessed in 2016. The fund made upward revisions to the growth prospects of the Euro area, Japan, China, emerging European economies and Russia, which more than offset downward revisions for the US, the UK and India.

The macroeconomic implications of changes in policy assumptions, especially for the United States and China, prompted IMF to alter its forecasts.

According to IMF’s report published in February 2017, Greece’s tax debt to the state climbed to €94.2 billion or close to 55% of GDP in November 2016. Interestingly, 80% of this debt belongs to less than 1% of debtors, which depicts a skewed distribution of debt among a relatively small number of debtors. Moreover, Greece’s tax collection rates (ratio of tax collection to assessment) have been consistently declining since the crisis, falling to 45% in 2015 from 75% in 2010.

At the stroke of midnight of 1 July 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi led Indian government’s roll out of Goods-and-Services Tax (GST) in a function held at the historic ‘Central Hall’ of the parliament. Billed as the country’s biggest tax-reform since independence, GST is meant to simplify the country’s messy indirect-tax structure. The launch of GST transformed India into a unified tax region by subsuming multiple and complex indirect-taxes, including state levies.
