English Also available in: French, German


Growth is projected to slow from 3.2% in 2019 to 2.2% in 2020 and 2021, as exports are hit by weak global demand. Consumption is projected to hold up despite slowing real wage growth, as household finances are strong after years of increasing real wages and employment. Buoyant investment, notably in housing, will fall back to moderate levels. Inflation will stabilise somewhat above 2% as the economy cools.
