Domestic Demand and Strong Exports Stimulate the Economy
According to the June 2006 economic outlook of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB), Austria’s real gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow 2.5% in 2006 and 2.2% in both 2007 and 2008. The OeNB’s growth forecast for 2006 has been revised upward by 0.2 percentage point since the December outlook. Inflation will drop to 1.7% in 2006 (2005: 2.1%) and will fall further to 1.6% in 2007 and 2008. Employment will continue to increase substantially, but so will the labor supply. As a result, the unemployment rate will dip only slightly, to 5.1%.
