Planning office predicts higher economic growth in 2018Thursday, 08 February 2018 19:48
The increased growth will be due mainly to higher domestic demand, the Planning Office says.
Economic growth in Belgium is still lower than in the euro zone as a whole, even if the gap is expected to narrow in 2018. Economic growth in the euro zone was 2.5% in 2017 and will be 2.2% in 2018.
Inflation will slow down slightly in Belgium this year, going from 2.1% in 2017 to 1.7%, due to the appreciation of the euro and lower electricity prices in Flanders.
