Europe's Economic Outlook Seems to Be Going From Bad to Worse
Thursday, 7 February 2019 19:23 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi Eropa

The economic outlook in the euro area looks like it might be going from bad to worse.

The 19-nation region has had a poor start to 2019: disappointingly weak indicators keep rolling in, the list of one-off growth inhibitors is getting longer, and a slew of institutions are downgrading their forecasts. Now, the bloc™s executive sees œsubstantial risks -- a change in tone that goes beyond the downbeat assessment of the European Central Bank.

The European Commission says an Italian economy close to stagnation and significantly weaker momentum in Germany will weigh on growth in the euro area this year, and has issued sweeping downward revisions to most of the region™s major economies.

Gloomier prospects reflect the protracted impact from unrest in Italy and France, and changing regulations that held back car production -- particularly in Germany. Also looming are uncertainty around global trade and a sharper-than-expected slowdown in China.

While ECB President Mario Draghi and colleagues have acknowledged the weakness and lowered their expectations for the outlook, they also point to rising wages and job creation as reasons for optimism. Last month, they classified growth risks as having œmoved to the downside, yet stopped short of changing their guidance on ultra-low interest rates, let alone resuming bond buying.

Data since that meeting have signaled continued deterioration. What was mostly a manufacturing and export-led slowdown is starting to spill into services, purchasing managers™ indexes showed this week, and an anticipated rebound in industry was pushed further out by unexpected declines in German and Spanish output.

Company earnings reports appear to underscore the struggles. Infineon Technologies said Tuesday it plans to reduce investments, arguing that high levels of uncertainty have sidelined customers. GEA Group issued a profit warning on Thursday citing further worsening macroeconomic conditions.

In its forecasts, the Commission predicts the 19-nation euro-area economy will expand 1.3 percent this year, down from 1.9 percent projected in November. For 2020, it sees growth at 1.6 percent.
