Description

The economic outlook for Western Europe is expected to stay muted in 2020. The US-China trade wars, global economic slowdown, and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit have softened external demand, affecting export-based economies such as Germany. While unemployment rates have been low and stable across most of Western Europe, job growth has plateaued and the slowdown of the manufacturing sector is expected to spill over to the service sector. Domestic demand has been the key GDP driver while net import growth has fallen across the region. Belgium and the Netherlands have had 2019’s GDP growth at the expected levels while export volumes were understandably low. Spain and Italy expect government spending through social transfers to buoy growth in 2020 compared to a muted 2019. Protests are expected to discourage private investment in France for 2020, unless the government chooses reconciliatory measures. Brexit’s uncertainty looms over the UK, discouraging private consumption, which is expected to retain its position as the key GDP growth driver in 2020.
