Greece Country Risk Report Q2 2015 - New Market Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Apr 08 2015


Core Views

* We expect a return to positive economic growth in 2014 following six years of depression. Thereafter we expect growth to remain well below the pre-crisis range.
* Underpinning positive economic growth will be a stabilisation in domestic demand as well as a positive contribution from the current account.
* The prospect of further spending cuts and tax hikes will ensure that demonstrations and national strikes remain a key feature of the political landscape over the medium term.

Major Forecast Changes

* There are no major forecast changes this quarter.

Key Risks To Outlook

* Upside Risks To Deficit Forecasts: The severity of the fiscal consolidation programme and the public backlash mean that the scope for slippage will remain pronounced.
* Downside Risks To Economic Growth Forecasts: A fragile recovery in the eurozone could yet go in reverse unless policymakers push forward with structural reforms and the ECB provides additional monetary stimulus. A failure to do so would risk prolonged stagnation in the euro area, which will in turn dent demand for Greek exports and further undermine the recovery.
