+ You have some great vocabulary in this answer.
+ Lots of good data highlighting the trends.
+ Lots of good linking words.

– You don’t need to write so much data in the overview. You can simply give the general trends. Have a look at this answer (which is a very similar graphic): https://englishprotips.com/lessons/task-1-how-to-get-7/
– Try to group the countries into paragraphs. You can group countries that show a similar trend. E.g. Body paragraph 1: countries that increase in growth, paragraph 2: countries that don’t increase in growth.
