The report highlighted that 11 of the top 20 fastest-growing economies will continue to come from developing countries, most of which are found in Sub-Sahara Africa, and much of their growth will be stimulated exploitation of their natural resources.
In regards to the world's worst-performing economies, the Economist points to western Europe, which are expected to have 12 of the top 20 slowest-growing economies in 2011.
World GDP growth (using market exchange-rate weights) will slow from 3.5% in 2010, to 2.5% in 2011, the report added.
