PARIS， June 1 (Xinhua) -- The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) on Wednesday called on world leaders to better coordinate and take further fiscal moves to avoid ""a low-growth trap.""
""Growth is flat in advanced economies and has slowed in many of the emerging economies that have been the global locomotive since the crisis. Slower productivity growth and rising inequality pose further challenges，"" said OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria.
""Comprehensive policy action is urgently needed to ensure that we get off this disappointing growth path and propel our economies to levels that will safeguard living standards for all，"" he added.
In its economic outlook， the Paris-based international organization confirmed its forecast of 2016 global growth at 3 percent， the same economic performance of 2015， the slowest pace in the past five years.
Growth of the 34-country OECD area is set to grow by 1.8 percent in 2016 and by 2.1 percent next year， according to the report.
Among the major advanced economies， the OECD expected a moderate recovery in the United States with a 1.8-percent rise in 2016 and 2.2 percent in 2017.
As to the euro area， the OECD projected the single-currency block to ""improve slowly"" with the 2016 GDP growth set to stand at 1.6 percent， up by 0.2 percent from a previous estimate.
With rebalancing continuing in China， growth is expected to slow to 6.5 percent in 2016 and 6.2 percent in 2017 next year.
However， the OECD saw many emerging market economies continue to lose momentum with a persistent deep recession mainly in Brazil where economic activities will contract by 4.3 percent in 2016 and by 1.7 percent in 2017.
Noting the waning global economy and rising income inequality in many countries， the OECD recommended ""more ambitious structural reforms"" with major focus on services sector in order to bolster short-term demand and to reach a long-term improvement of labor markets.
""If we don't take action to boost productivity and potential growth， both younger and older generations will be worse off，"" said OECD chief economist Catherine L Mann.
""The longer the global economy remains in this low-growth trap， the harder it will be for governments to meet fundamental promises. The consequences of policy inaction will be low career prospects for today's youth and lower retirement income for future pensioners，"" she added.
During its annual ministerial meeting and forum， the OECD also warned that an eventual Brexit ""would trigger negative economic effects on the UK， other European countries and the rest of the world"".
By 2030， post-Brexit UK GDP could be over 5 percent lower than if the country remained in the European Union， it estimated.

NAIROBI Brandon Parker Raiders Jersey , June 24 (Xinhua) -- Olympic marathon bronze medallist Wilson Kipsang has pulled out of the Kenya team to the world championships, in Moscow.
David Okeyo, Athletics Kenya Vice President Mario Edwards Jr Raiders Jersey , said Kipsang will not be part of the Kenya delegation to Moscow for the championships, which will be held in Russia in August.
Kipsang joins Olympic silver medallist and defending champion Abel Kirui to walk out on the Kenya team, which faces a litmus test to firm its grip as the giants in long distance running.
"It is true the two runners are out. Kirui has failed to recover from his leg injury while Kipsang has contacted us saying that he is not keen to run in Moscow.
"Kipsang has other engagements and wants to attempt a world record either in Berlin or somewhere else. So he asked to be left out Karl Joseph Raiders Jersey ," said Okeyo, Monday in Nairobi.
Kipsang won the London marathon in 2012, but was fifth this year. He holds the second fastest time in the 42km distance of 2:03.42 David Sharpe Raiders Jersey , which he set in 2011 in winning Hamburg marathon.
The news is a blow to Kenya hopes of retaining the world marathon title in Moscow. Kirui, who was third at the London marathon, was keen to make history as the first athlete to win the world title three times in a row after he was successful in Berlin (2009) and Daegu in South Korea (2011).
"I have opted out of the defending my title at the World Championships. I have failed to recover from the injury Eddie Vanderdoes Raiders Jersey , which I got in training back in march," said Kirui, Monday in Eldoret.
Kirui is nursing a muscle strain after it failed to respond quickly to treatment. He has been to hospitals in Amsterdam Obi Melifonwu Raiders Jersey , Nairobi and Eldoret to seek special medical advice.
Doctors advised him to stay away after he was diagnosed with stress fractures.
"Kirui has a grade two stress fracture in his right shin. After showing painful bruising around his right leg, Kirui was investigated by the Department of Elite Sports Medicine in the Dutch town of Ede and found to have a grade two stress reaction with edema in the right distal fibula bone with reactive edema in the surrounding soft tissue," his management team said.
Alongside Kirui and Kipsang Gareon Conley Raiders Jersey , there will be no room for world marathon record holder Patrick Makau, who misses out on his second international event, after he was overlooked in the selection to the London Olympics last August.
But there is Tokyo marathon champion Dennis Kimetto (2:04:16) P.J. Hall Raiders Jersey , who will be eying to prove to his mentor, Berlin marathon champion Geoffrey Mutai, that he has what it takes to step into his shoes.
Another green horn making a curve in the Kenyan team is Peter Kimeli Some Kolton Miller Raiders Jersey , a son of legendary Kenyan Some Muge (The late), who won the country the first ever cross country medal in Madrid in 1983.
Throw in Hamburg marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge, London marathon silver medallist Emmanuel Mutai and there is still hope for Kenya to hold firm in Moscow in the men cadre.
The women team has Edna Kiplagat defending her title Connor Cook Black Jersey , after she came second at the London marathon behind compatriot Priscah Jeptoo, who is also in th.
