English German, French



Output is set to contract for the third year in a row in 2014. Rising unemployment and mounting uncertainties are undermining business and consumer confidence. Fiscal tightening is also weighing on economic activity. The upturn in both domestic and foreign demand is projected to be slow, as subdued income growth holds back consumption, global growth remains sluggish and ample spare capacity delays a pick-up in investment.
