Northern Territory 007-08 budget External Economic Environment Global growth is forecast by Consensus Economics to ease slightly to 4.7 per cent in 2007. Economic growth is expected to be strong in China, India and many South East Asian countries. Risks to the generally positive outlook include the possibility of inflationary pressures leading to further increases in interest rates and a greater than expected slowdown in the United States economy. Consensus Economics forecasts Australian GDP growth of 2.9 in 2007. ABARE forecasts mineral and energy exports to increase by 20 per cent to about $111 billion, with both value and volume increasing. Negotiations are proceeding with China, Malaysia, Japan, Chile and Korea for free trade agreements.
