OECD: Global Growth 1% Lower This Year Due To Ukraine War


Secretary General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Mathias Cormann delivering presser on the OECD's view on the impact of the Ukraine war on the global economy.

  • Cormann says that the crisis could see global growth more than 1% lower due to the crisis, while adding 2.5% or more to inflation.
  • Cormann: 'Central banks should be prepared to intervene if needed to ensure smooth functioning of financial markets'.
  • Livestream:
  • OECD: Gov't could "cushion the impact of the conflict" without boosting inflation.
  • Cormann: “Even though Russia and Ukraine are a comparatively small part of the global economy, the economic disruptions brought on by the conflict are large and are likely to continue in the future.”
  • Cormann: “This crisis calls for sensible, well targeted, temporary short term measures while staying focused on long-term objectives, ensuring the resilience of our global supply chains, ensuring energy, food and digital security, and staying the course on our climate objectives.”
