Executives list supply-chain disruptions as top risk to growth

Executives remain optimistic about the global economy at the close of Q2, reports EPSNews, but not every region is benefiting equally from Covid-19 vaccination rates and re-opened businesses. IPC has raised its outlook for the United States, Europe, Mexico, Australia and Taiwan but notes Japan, India, Indonesia and Turkey continue to struggle.

A recent McKinsey survey found what EPSNews describes as ‘spotty recovery’. “Executives in developed economies now report much more positive views than their counterparts—a reversal from the first year of the pandemic—as well as new threats to growth. As the pandemic recedes as an outsize and largely universal risk to the economy, respondents believe that inflation and supply-chain disruptions are emergent.”
