In the United States, we saw an improvement in economic data published in April. In the first quarter, the GDP of the US grew by 6.4% on an annual basis with expectations for accelerating growth during the year amid declining unemployment. At the same time, President Biden, in addition to the latest stimulus package of 1.9 trillion dollars plans 2.3 trillion dollars infrastructure package and 1.8 trillion dollars to support American families.
In Europe, the pace of vaccination is accelerating and, although still weak, there are signs of improvement of the economic data in April. For the first quarter, the GDP of the Eurozone declined by 0.6% with expectations of accelerating growth and peaking in the third quarter.
In the emerging markets, the Chinese economy continues to normalize, with domestic consumption expected to be the most significant driver of growth. A tragic April for India, where in the short term plan challenges lie ahead, but the region remains in first place in terms of projected growth for the next decade. The reporting season for the first quarter of the year started last month with impressive results and promising forecasts for the coming quarters. Amid the improving economic environment, numerous incentives and rising inflation for investors, the guidelines of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) for monetary policy are becoming increasingly important. For now, the Fed assures that there are no grounds for reducing asset purchases.
