Macroeconomic policy / 'Economic Outlook'
The Economic Outlook is our twice-yearly review of recent economic developments and projection of future economic developments. It is based on input from our member federations across Europe.
According to our Spring 2019 Economic Outlook, the recent downturn highlights the fragility of the EU economy:
- EU economic growth fell considerably in the second half of 2018;
- We expect for 2019 GDP growth of 1.6% in the EU and 1.3% in the Euro-area, considerably lower than our autumn forecast;
- Following tentative signs of a rebound in growth already in Q1 this year, we expect growth to pick up in 2020 to 1.7% in the EU and 1.5% in the Euro-area.
