Research institute forecasts 1.3% economic growth in 2019Thursday, 10 January 2019 16:05
“While domestic demand should be sustained due to improvements in the labour-market situation and the purchasing power of households, as well as a certain business optimism, the contribution of foreign demand would, on the other hand, be reduced as a result of slower growth in the global economy and international trade,” added IRES, which publishes its forecasts in the Regards économiques magazine.
Employment should increase in net terms by just over 37,900 units in 2019, while the number of jobseekers is likely to decrease by 15,200, according to the research institute.
Consumer prices are expected to increase by 1.8% this year, while the public budget deficit should be equivalent to 1.6% of GDP.
