    By , , , ,

    Eurozone | Economic Watch – September

    By , , ,

    Economic recovery should continue in 3Q16 but at slower pace. Our estimates suggest quarterly GDP growth to decelerate slightly to +0.2% QoQ in 3Q16 -after a +0.3% QoQ figure in 2Q16-, in the back of still weak investment and lower contribution from net exports. Private consumption should remain as the main driver for GDP growth.
