UNCTAD secretary general: Global economy recovering
ACTING UN Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD) secretary-general Isabelle Durant said the global economy is recovering from covid19.
She made this statement during a virtual news conference on Thursday about the UNCTAD 15 meeting, which will be co-hosted virtually by Barbados and Switzerland from October 3-7.
Durant said, "The global economy is recovering faster than initially expected. It is projected to grow by close to five per cent in 2021.. a growth rate not seen in more than a decade."
