As we head into the second quarter of 2024 what is in store for the global economy in the coming months? So far, multiple economic indicators show that the recovery momentum in China’s economy continues. And, that is expected to also boost the global economy. In the U.S., new economic numbers released Friday show robust jobs growth over the last month. But there are fears about inflation. And India’s economy is also getting lots of attention this month with elections coming up shortly.
