The Eurozone economy appears to have remained resilient to the wide-ranging uncertainties currently confronting it from both home and abroad. The broad picture from the available data for Q4 last year suggests that the economic recovery gathered steam after steady but unspectacular quarterly gains of 0.3% in Q2 and Q3. The composite PMI rose to a five and a half year high in December and, on past form, points to a Q4 GDP rise of almost 0.5%. Meanwhile, retail sales are on track to grow by a robust 0.9% in Q4, implying that household spending has picked up. As a result, we now expect a healthy 0.5% increase in GDP in Q4.

The key concern is of course whether the surge in inflation in December, which looks set to continue in early-2017, will undermine the household spending recovery and lead to GDP growth tailing off this year. For now, however, we have made no major changes to our growth assessment - we see GDP growth of about 1.5% in both 2017 and 2018, a touch weaker than this year's upwardly revised 1.7% rise, but still well above the economy's potential growth rate.
