Saudi Arabia Will Have The Best Economic Growth For 2022 And 2023 Among G-20 Countries— OECD Report

The OECD report states the real GDP growth of the Saudi economy will reach 9.9 percent in 2022 and six percent next year.

Riyadh — Saudi economy will register the best growth rate among the G-20 states for the year 2022 and the following year, 2023. This projection is according to an OECD report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The organization’s OECD Economic Outlook Interim Report September 2022report expects the real GDP growth projections of the Saudi economy to reach 9.9 percent this year.

And six percent in 2023, thus recording the highest growth rate among the G20 countries. The report includes the G-20 economy, emerging market economies, and developing economies.

Despite the uphill challenges facing the global economy, the continued inflation, and the slowdown in GDP growth in 2022 and 2023.

The estimates of the OECD report for the Kingdom contradict the dark outlook that stems from several significant factors.

Among these factors are the following:

  • The Russian-Ukrainian crisis.
  • The rise in energy and food prices.
  • The worsening of inflationary pressures.
  • The tightening of monetary policies.
  • General closure measures due to the new outbreaks of COVID-19.

The OECD report lowered its performance expectations of the global economy for the current year and 2023. Its estimates were influenced by the downshift in growth in most economies in the world.

Still, it kept its expectations for the rise in the Saudi economy during 2022 at 9.9 percent and the high growth of the Saudi economy over the year 2023 by 6 percent.

It is noteworthy that OECD is a unique forum where the governments of 37 democracies with market-based economies collaborate to develop policy standards to promote sustainable economic growth.

According to the OECD report, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are still lingering while the war in Ukraine is dragging growth and adding rising pressure on commodity prices, Mostly affecting food and energy prices.

The stagnating second-quarter Global GDP of 2022 brought an output decline in the G20 economies. High inflation has continued for longer than expected.

In many economies, inflation in the first half of 2022 was at its highest since the 1980s. The global economic outlook has darkened, with recent indicators taking a turn for the worse.

The OECD report follows a similar IMF report on the strong-performing Saudi economy. The IMF report commended the strength of the Saudi economy and its reliable financial position.

It stressed that the Kingdom’s economic prospects are positive in the short and medium term.

This positive outlook is brought on by the continued recovery of economic growth rates, containment of inflation, and the increasing strength of its external financial position.

IMF experts stressed that Saudi Arabia’s continued implementation of structural reforms would help ensure a robust and comprehensive recovery.

It noted that the Kingdom is recovering strongly from the pandemic-caused recession.

It pointed out that the support of liquidity, the momentum of reforms, the increased oil prices, and increased production helped the Kingdom recover quickly.
