Hide / Show Abstract

Economic growth will continue to pick up in 2014 as the euro area gradually recovers, the mutual fund industry attracts more inflows and the pace of fiscal consolidation lessens. In 2015, the new EU VAT regime for e-commerce will bear on competitiveness, and higher domestic VAT rates slow demand. The backward-looking wage indexation could transmit the effects of the VAT rise into wages, reducing competitiveness.
