Also, it says that the world’s centre of economic gravity is shifting eastward for decades and causing trade patterns to shift gradually. Additionally, the report noted that “Between 2019 and 2050, 56 per cent of global growth is expected to come from the Indo-Pacific, compared with a quarter from the EU and North America combined. Growth within the Indo-Pacific is also expected to rebalance over time, with South Asia’s contribution (driven by India) rising.”

The key reason behind the economic gravity shifting eastward is China’s rapid progress. By the year 2030, China is expected to be the world’s largest economy in Purchasing Power Parity (PPP).

However, it is also expected that China will completely overtake the US in terms of the world’s largest economy in 2030. The report states, “The overtake is expected to happen around 2030. At that point, both countries will account for around 22% of global GDP.”
