Malcolm Turnbull says the Australian economy is facing big headwinds from a sluggish global economy.

Mr Turnbull was speaking ahead of the national accounts which economists expect will show the economy contracted in the September quarter, the first decline since March 2011.

"We have sluggish growth across the world at the moment and that is one of the reasons why everything we do, every element of our policy has to promote economic growth," Mr Turnbull told reporters in Sydney on Wednesday.
