Global economic growth is expected to rise from 2.5 percent last year to 2.9 percent in 2017 and 3.1 percent in 2018 – its highest rate since 2010 – rating agency Fitch Ratings said Monday.

“Faster growth this year reflects a synchronised improvement across both advanced and emerging market economies,” Fitch said in its Global Economic Outlook report.

“The recovery in commodity prices from early 2016 has fuelled a rebound in emerging market demand,” it added.

Fitch revised upward Turkey’s forecast, pointing to strong first-quarter results that showed 5 percent growth from the same quarter a year ago.

“A potentially smoother political environment, with the referendum complete and the next elections not due until November 2019, should support a strengthening of investment and consumption through mid-2019,” the report said.

The agency now estimates the Turkish economy will expand 4.7 percent in 2017 and 4.1 percent next year.

After growing 2.9 percent last year, Fitch said in March it anticipated the Turkish economy to grow by 2.3 percent in 2017 and 1.3 percent in 2018.

Developed countries are forecast to post an average growth rate of 1.8 percent in 2017 and 2 percent in 2018, while the economies of emerging nations are projected to grow at an average of 4.9 percent through 2018.

While the U.S. economy in expected to grow 2.1 percent this year and 2.6 percent next year, the Eurozone is anticipated to grow by 2 percent in 2016 and 1.8 percent in 2017.
