Abschwächung der Konjunktur, aber keine Rezession. Prognose für 2019 und 2020 (Cyclical Activity Slackening, But No Recession. Economic Outlook for 2019 and 2020)

Die österreichische Wirtschaft verliert weiter an Schwung und wächst im Prognosezeitraum nur mäßig. Die Schwäche der Weltwirtschaft dämpft die Export- und Industriedynamik. Weiterhin günstige Finanzierungsbedingungen, fiskalische Impulse und eine robuste Konsumnachfrage stützen hingegen die Konjunktur. Das BIP dürfte 2019 um 1,7% und 2020 um 1,4% zunehmen.

Cyclical Activity Slackening, But No Recession. Economic Outlook for 2019 and 2020
Economic growth in Austria is gradually decelerating to a moderate pace over the forecast period. The lack of dynamism in the global economy dampens exports and manufacturing output. Yet, favourable financing conditions, fiscal stimulus and resilient private consumption provide support to economic activity. GDP is expected to grow by 1.7 percent in 2019 and 1.4 percent in 2020.
