Growth Stimulus from Tax Reform in 2005 to Overshadow Weaker Global Economic Momentum
According to the fall 2004 economic outlook of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB), Austria's real gross domestic product (GDP) is projected to increase to 1.8% in 2004. Economic growth of 2.3% and 2.1% is expected in 2005 and 2006, respectively. Fuelled by the rise in oil prices, in particular, inflation as measured by the Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) will be 1.9% in 2004, 2.0% in 2005 and 1.7% in 2006. The second stage of the tax reform will result in the budget deficit (Maastricht definition) deepening from 1.4% in 2004 to 2.0% in 2005 and to 1.8% in 2006.
