Economic forecasts by the Federal Government’s Expert Group – winter 2018/2019
The Expert Group is significantly lowering its forecast for GDP growth in 2018 and 2019. This is mainly due to weak domestic demand, which is likely to pick up again only in 2020. GDP is set to grow by 1.5% in 2019 and by 1.7% in 2020.
