Macroeconomic development in the czech republic and accession to the european union


  • Jan Fidrmuc
  • Jarko Fidrmuc


This paper discusses the implications of accession of the Czech Republic to the European Union. First, we estimate the potential growth in the enlargement and the non-enlargement scenarios. Second, we provide a structural forecast of GDP components. We show that both forecasts are consistent. Accordingly, GDP growth is forecasted to be 4.5 % and 5.0 % in 2001 - 2004 and 4.2 % and 5.2 % in 2005 - 2010 for the accession and non-accession scenarios, respectively. The accession scenario follows the current cyclical pattern (recession 1998 - 1999, recovery 2000 - 2003, boom 2004 - 2007, and a soft landing in the following years), while the non-accession scenario would extend the current recession until 2005.
