Economic growth is projected to strengthen in 2016, as a robust labour market, low interest rates and low oil prices underpin private consumption. Weaker demand from emerging market economies will gradually be offset by stronger exports to other euro area economies. Business investment is expected to recover with rising capacity utilisation. The refugees with prospects to stay durably will enter the labour market gradually and can help reduce the impact of demographic change in the medium term. The unemployment rate will remain historically low. The current account surplus will narrow somewhat but will remain very high.
