The OECD Economic Outlook is the OECD’s twice-yearly analysis of the major economic trends and prospects for the next two years. The Outlook puts forward a consistent set of projections for output, employment, prices, fiscal and current account balances.

Coverage is provided for all OECD member countries as well as for selected non-member countries. This issue includes a general assessment, chapters summarising developments and providing projections for each individual country and an extensive statistical annex.

Growth has slowed as deteriorating financial conditions and weaker export markets are damping exports of financial services and other products. Domestic demand will therefore remain weak and unemployment is expected to increase. Inflation will ease due to falls in energy and commodity prices. The main risk to the outlook is a worsening of the sovereign debt crisis in the euro area, which could have a lasting impact on the large financial sector. Luxembourg should thus continue to participate in European initiatives to ensure that the banking system is well-capitalised and adequately funded.
