The latest economic update from the Organisation for Ecomomic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) has seen it revise down its forecasts for global growth for the second time in a couple of months.

This also represents a slower pace of growth than in 2018, with both the OECD and IMF estimating that the world economy will expand by 3.7% this year.
