The spread of the epidemic still disrupts the global economic recovery.
In countries and regions with severe epidemics, the manufacturing industry fluctuates more obviously.
Eliminating the impact of the epidemic as soon as possible is still the foundation of the sustained and stable recovery of the global economy.
The analysis believes that under the disturbance of the epidemic, the stability of the global supply chain needs to be consolidated.
The shortage of raw materials and labor supply continues to push up the operating costs of enterprises, and the global inflationary pressure remains high.
The year-on-year growth rate of the consumer price index (CPI) in major European and American countries has increased significantly.
In addition, the continuation of the epidemic has further exacerbated the differentiation of the recovery of different economies, and the imbalance of global economic development will be difficult to change in the short term.
