The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said global economic recovery is strengthening.
In its latest World Economic Outlook, the IMF has revised its forecast for the global economy and is now expecting slightly stronger growth.
It now predicts growth of 3.6% this year and 3.7% in 2018.
The IMF's forecast for the UK is the same as in its July report.
It expects growth to slow from 1.8% in 2016 to 1.7% this year and to 1.5% in 2018.
