Hide / Show Abstract

Growth is projected to ease somewhat but still remain solid and employment is set to expand further. Stronger activity in the euro area is boosting exports and business investment, but euro appreciation and higher wages may dent competitiveness. Low unemployment and wage gains underpin private consumption, but are also raising consumer price inflation. Low interest rates and strong housing demand, partly due to immigration, sustain residential investment. The current account surplus will fall somewhat, but will still remain high.
