Dennis Nally, Chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) International, presented some of the key findings of PwC's annual survey of business leaders from around the world at a press briefing in Davos, Switzerland.
The number of CEOs who see improvement in the global economy over the next 12 months leapt to 44%, up from only 18% last year. And just 7% predict the global economy will decline, sharply down from 28% in 2013.
For their own companies, 39% of CEOs say they are ‘very confident’ of revenue growth prospects for the next 12 months. That’s up from 36% last year.
For PwC's 17th Annual Global CEO Survey, 1,344 interviews were conducted in 68 countries during the last quarter of 2013.
