As Euro Area growth is losing steam, cost controls will be a priority for businesses


October 2018 | Economy Watch Reports

The Euro Area economy continues to grow, even though growth has been losing steam. We expect output growth to be 2 percent in 2018 and 1.9 percent in 2019, which is higher than the long-term trend for the next decade. These figures are a constant reminder that the main problem with the European economy is the long-term growth potential, not the current outlook, that, all in all, is still very positive.
