Slightly improved outlook for growth in the euro area

Euro area growth is likely to strengthen somewhat in the beginning of 2020 after another quarter of sluggish growth in the final months of last year, according to the January Euro Growth Indicator. GDP is forecast to increase by close to 0.4 per cent in the first quarter of this year, following a third consecutive quarter of only 0.2 per cent growth at the end of 2019.
