REUTERS:  Growth is seen easing off in major advanced economies, the OECD said yesterday, with the outlook continuing to deteriorate in the United States and Britain while the German economy is 
losing steam.
The Paris-based Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development said its monthly leading economic indicator, a measure designed to flag turning points in the world economy, showed signs of stabilisation in China, India and France.
“The CLIs (composite leading indicators) continue to point to easing growth in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan, with a similar outlook now expected in Germany and Italy,” it said in a statement.
“In India and France, growth momentum is stabilising. Signs of growth stabilisation are also emerging in China and Canada,” it said.
On an index where 100 represents the long-term average, the OECD said the reading for OECD countries as a whole edged down to 99.6 in February from 99.7 the month before.
The euro zone economy remained at 100.5 in its latest review of conditions, with the indicator for France stable at 100.9 while it dipped for Italy from 100.8 to 100.7.
The U.S. reading edged lower, to 98.9 from 99.0, while the UK reading dipped to 99.1 from 99.2. Germany’s indicator dropped to 99.7 from 99.8.
China stood at 98.4, unchanged from the previous month. Brazil’s reading remained at 97.7 while Russia stabilised at 98.2.
