Budgetary Governance in Practice: Luxembourg

Growth in Luxembourg is projected to strengthen significantly to 4% by 2019, boosted by dynamic domestic demand and growth in the domestic financial sector, which will foster exports. Wage growth, which is projected to pick up following automatic wage indexation at the beginning of the year, is a factor behind higher inflation. The unemployment rate is declining slowly, but, at around 6%, remains high, at least by Luxembourg standards.
