Development Trends - The Monthly

This monthly background note is prepared for review by the Bank's Short-term Risk Monitoring Group (STRMG), and later distributed to a wider internal Bank audience and the Board of Executive Directors. The note helps to keep readers informed on high-frequency developments in areas that are crucial for setting the global environment for growth among developing countries:

²

Concerns of an imminent tapering of US quantitative easing (QE) during the summer caused long-term US Treasury yields to rise by more than 100 basis points, thereby precipitating a portfolio rebalancing.

²Industrial activity in developing countries improved to an annualized 7.1 percent pace in the three months ending in August from 4.9 percent in July.
²Crude oil prices stabilized in September and October, as risks related to geo-political tensions in Syria receded. Food prices have continued their downward slide on account of an improved supply outlook. Indeed, rice remains in ample supply with an estimated 23% stock-to-use ratio and that of maize also improved to 16.3% in September.
