Das österreichische BIP wuchs im II. Quartal 2019 gegenüber der Vorperiode um 0,3% (nach +0,4% im I. Quartal 2019 und +0,5% im IV. Quartal 2018). Damit setzte sich die Expansion der Vorjahre zwar fort, sie verlangsamt sich aber seit Anfang 2018 kontinuierlich. Die positive Entwicklung der Realwirtschaft spiegelt sich auf dem Arbeitsmarkt nach wie vor in Form eines Anstieges der Beschäftigung und eines Rückganges der Arbeitslosigkeit. Der Preisauftrieb schwächte sich zuletzt ab.

Domestic Demand Supports Economic Activity in Austria
In the second quarter of 2019, Austrian GDP grew by 0.3 percent compared to the previous period (after +0.4 percent in the first quarter of 2019 and +0.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018). Although the expansion of previous years continued, it has slowed continuously since the beginning of 2018. The positive development of the real economy continues to be reflected in the labour market in the form of an increase in employment and a decline in unemployment. Inflation has recently slackened.
