Full title: Where next for Europe’s economy? The latest IMF European Regional Economic Outlook in a global context
This EPRS-IMF policy roundtable will look at the latest IMF Regional Economic Outlook for Europe, reviewing the current economic context and assessing the appropriate policy mix in an uncertain environment. The Outlook projects growth declining in most European countries and recovering only modestly in 2020.
Downside risks come from a no-deal Brexit, escalating trade tensions, and sizable spillovers from trade and manufacturing weakness to other sectors. There are considerable differences, however, across sectors and between countries. Can the services sector avoid the drag from manufacturing and trade? Can 'emerging' Europe defy the slowdown in 'advanced' Europe? And will robust wage growth finally boost Europe's subdued inflation? These are some of the questions to be addressed in this joint EPRS-IMF event.
