With global growth forecasts falling steadily since Q4 2018 and myriad trade and policy disruptions in the past 12 months, executives will enter strategic planning season with less certainty on the future demand and regulatory environments than at any time in the previous decade- The global economy is expected to remain stable in 2020, but risks are tilted to the downside- A manufacturing slowdown that has weighed on global activity in 2019 is expected to fade gradually as firms adjust production lower, price discounting helps clear inventory builds, and central banks and governments step in with monetary and fiscal easing to support consumer demand- Firms should approach 2020 with caution, continuing to target resilient customer bases while focusing on risk mitigation strategies.
