Austrian GDP grew by 0.8 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared with the previous period, after +0.9 percent in the
third and fourth quarter 2017. As a result, the economic momentum continued from the previous year and the boom phase continues.
The positive development of the real economy is also reflected in the labour market in an increase in employment and a decline
in unemployment. Inflation is currently still unusually restrained.
