MNI China Daily Summary: Thursday, June 8
More Upbeat EC Winter Forecast Narrowly Avoids Recession
The European Commission's Winter '23 forecast was more upbeat, lifting growth expectations for the euro area to +0.9% in for 2023 (+0.8% in EU) and implying a technical recession will be avoided.
- This is 0.5 (0.6pp EU) stronger than the Autumn forecast.
- Inflation projections for 2023 and 2024 were lowered slightly. Energy, goods and food prices are anticipated to slow and services inflation will ease only gradually due to wage growth.
- Successful diversification of gas supply alongside a marked reduction in consumption has contributed to high gas storage levels and wholesale gas prices have eased.
- Inflation risks are largely energy-related, whilst risks to growth are balanced. High energy costs, rising core inflation and tightening financial conditions may prove a more pronounced drag on demand. China's reopening in particular could boost external demand, but also global inflation.
- Note: the forecast implements the assumption that the Russia-Ukraine war does not escalate.
