Countries with the highest purchasing power parity [BI]

China currently holds the global highest purchasing power parity in 2024.

The difference in the cost of purchasing the same products in different economies has been described as the purchasing power parity, a development caused by lower wages in the underdeveloped countries.

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the purchasing power parity (PPP) can be described as the rate at which the currency of one country would have to be converted into the currency of another country to purchase the same amount of goods and services in each country.

For example, a handmade suit is more expensive in New York than in Delhi, a plate of a continental dish costs more in Paris than in China, and the ticket of a soccer game is more expensive in London than in Lahore.
