When you are studying globalisation, it is handy to have some key stats on the world economy at your fingertips.

Key Stats on the World Economy

More than half of the annual world output of goods and services now comes from emerging market / developing countries.

However, the entire sub-Saharan African region only accounts for three per cent of world production of goods and services.

The European Union – after the UK’s exit at the end of 2020 now accounts for 15% of world GDP

The UK now accounts for around 2.5% of the world economy – keep this in mind when discussing the impact of the UK on global economic and financial events
