GDP growth forecast for French-speaking Switzerland points to acceleration
The economy of French-speaking Switzerland appears to be bouncing back from the Swiss National Bank’s (SNB) decision in January 2015 to drop the EUR/CHF currency floor.
After coming in at 0.9% last year, the region’s growth is expected to accelerate to 2.3% in 2018. In 2019, the economy should continue to expand at a relatively brisk clip of 1.9%. Those forecasts were released today by the region’s six cantonal banks, in collaboration with the CREA Institute and the Forum des 100, an annual conference held by Swiss newspaper Le Temps.
These results were presented at the Forum des 100, that took place at the University of Lausanne on Thursday, May 24, 2018: www.forumdes100.ch
