This report unveiled that growth rates for the Euro area and the European Union beat expectations in 2017 as the transition from economic recovery to expansion continued. The euro area and EU economies were both estimated to have grown by 2.4 percent in 2017, the fastest pace in a decade.
From 2018, the European Commission decided revert to publishing two comprehensive forecasts (spring and autumn) and two interim forecasts (winter and summer) each year, instead of the three comprehensive forecasts in winter, spring and autumn that it produced each year since 2012.
The interim forecasts is set to cover annual and quarterly GDP and inflation for the current year and following years for all Member States and the euro area, as well as EU aggregates.
The European Commission published on 7 February 2018 its latest Economic Forecast for the European Union, Eurozone and each member state.
