The CLIs point to above-trend economic growth in Japan, building growth momentum in the U.K. and euro-zone and a positive change in momentum for Canada. The U.S. is expected to see growth around the trend.

In the emerging economies, the CLI indicates a positive moementum change is likely in China while Russia is expected to see growth in line with trend. Brazil and India continue to indicate below-trend growth is likely.
