Will India and China escape global recession?


According to the UN reports,  the world economy, this year,  will go into recession suffering a predicted loss of trillions of dollars of global income due to the coronavirus pandemic spelling serious trouble for developing countries. India and China are expected to be out of this count.


With two-thirds of the world’s population living in developing countries facing unprecedented economic damage from the COVID-19 crisis, the UN is calling for a USD 2.5 trillion rescue package for these nations.


According to the new analysis from United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the UN trade and development body titled ‘The COVID-19 Shock to Developing Countries: Towards a ‘whatever it takes’ programme for the two-thirds of the world’s population being left behind’, commodity-rich exporting countries will face a USD 2 trillion to USD 3 trillion drop in investments from overseas in the next two years.
