Economic forecasts by the Federal Government’s Expert Group – spring 2019
The Expert Group is lowering its forecast for GDP growth in 2019 from 1.5% to 1.1%. The global economy is losing more momentum than previously assumed, which is slowing down Swiss foreign trade and investment activity. Economic growth is set to rise to 1.7% in 2020.
