Central Economic Plan (CEP) 2016

CEP 2016, 21 March 2016

The moderate rate of economic recovery is continuing, on a global level, with a 2.9% growth in the world economy projected for this year, and 3.2% for the next. In the emerging economies economic growth will slow down, and in the United States leading indicators point to it levelling-off. This is a translation of chapter 1 of the Dutch publication.

Read the accompanying press release or go directly to the main indicators.

In the eurozone, growth is progressing slowly but surely, with 1.6% this year and 1.7% in 2017. The world trade relevant for the Netherlands will gradually increase to 4.4% by next year. Price levels are determined by the recent continuing drop in resource prices and particularly the oil price, a major cause of the low inflation rate in many countries.
