The European Union's economic growth is likely to be stronger than expected in 2023. Even in the face of an uncertain landscape the EU could shrug off recession in the first quarter.
Gas prices falling below their pre-war levels, green transition accelerating with a higher pace than expected, and continued strong labor market performance helped the trading bloc to avoid unfavorable scenarios. However, the EU economy is still beset with challenges, like elevated inflationary pressures, high interest rates, and weak external environment.
Join us for an in-depth analysis of the European economy and the newly released Spring 2023 Economic Forecast. Our panel will discuss the recent economic data and public policy developments through mid-May and weigh the prospects for European and global growth against a range of potential risks.
