The International Monetary Fund will raise its forecast for global growth according to its managing director, Christine Lagarde.
She said the revision would come in the next three weeks but did not elaborate, saying that it would be premature to say any more.
In October the IMF lowered its growth forecasts, saying the global economy “remains in low gear”.
It cut its growth forecast for 2014 by 0.2 of a percentage point to 3.6%.
It also reduced the estimate for 2013 growth by 0.3 of a point to 2.9%.
Back then it warned that a slower pace of expansion in emerging economies such as Brazil, China and India, was holding back global expansion.
Many economists have been surprised at the strength of the rebound in developed economies, particularly the United States and the UK.
