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 Autumn 2019 Economic Outlook, the EU economy is experiencing an economic slowdown, reflecting declining global demand and uncertainties due to trade tensions:
- Growth has been on a largely downwards trajectory through 2018 and 2019, dropping to just 0.2% (quarter-on-quarter) in Q2 2019 and 0.3% in Q3 2019;
- For 2019 we expect GDP growth of 1.3% in the EU and 1.1% in the Euro-area, considerably lower than our spring forecast;
- We expect growth to slow down slightly in 2020 to 1.2% in the EU and 1.0% in the Euro-area.
