2. The Bank of France: The trade war will drag down the economy. The report of the Bank of France pointed out that the international trade war triggered by the wide-ranging increase of tariffs may reduce the global GDP growth rate by 3 percentage points. Economists at the Bank of France predict that a 10% increase in import tariffs will directly lead to a 1% drop in global economic growth after two years. Declining productivity, rising financing costs and sluggish investment demand will further amplify this impact. Based on the above factors, global GDP growth rate can drop by up to 3 percentage points after two years. Francois Villeroy de Galhau, president of the Bank of France, said that the biggest risk facing the global economy today is the trade war, which will hit business confidence and affect corporate investment.
