A sustained economic recovery must be one which is balanced between "north and south", David Cameron has said.
Speaking ahead of a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the prime minister said that recovery would take time.
A number of economies are seeing signs of recovery but there are fears that the gap between the rich and poor is widening.
