Boom in Asia, Slow Recovery in EU and Austria


  • Markus Marterbauer



Austria's economy stagnated in the first quarter of 2010 compared with both the fourth quarter of 2009 (–0.1 percent) and the previous year (+0.2 percent). Stimulus was provided by exports to Germany, hence indirectly by buoyant economic growth in Asia and expanding world trade. Domestic consumer demand is rising at a steady, albeit moderate pace. Investments continue to decline, a self-sustaining recovery in investment has not got off the ground as yet. Labour market conditions are improving steadily. Consumer prices are rising, mainly as a result of price increases for commodities.
