The global macroeconomic environment was characterized by improving dynamics for the most part in the first six months of the business year 2017/18. Apart from private consumption, which was the main pillar for economic growth in most regions in the past, investment activities increasingly contributed to the positive development in the course of the first half 2017/18.

This development applies in particular for Europe and increasingly also for

reforms of its environmental- and climate change policies without risking the
underlying positive economic trend. After several years of recession, first
signs of an economic turnaround are visible in Brazil. This article includes a total of 525 words.
