Global growth in 2018 has been strong across most sectors, with a pick-up in private business investment and global trade, and is expected to remain positive for the rest of the year.
In the July Quarterly Economic Outlook, KPMG Economics is reporting that global growth in 2018 has been strong across most sectors despite losing some of its momentum in Q1 2018.
Closer to home, the Australian economy grew by 1.0 percent q/q (seasonally-adjusted) in the March quarter of 2018 following an upwardly revised 0.5 percent q/q growth in Q4 2018.
