EUROZONE Macro Note, 2022 | VRS Research Team

After a solid economic growth in 2021 and strong economic activity data releases in the first months of 2022, the Eurozone economy faces once again huge challenges and the near-term outlook looks uncertain. The Russian invasion in Ukraine has generated thousands of deaths of civilians and military forces, triggered a humanitarian crisis in some parts of Ukraine, and created a massive refugee crisis in Europe.

Eurozone Economic Outlook Report – Q2 2021

After an unprecedented collapse of economic activity in 2020 amid an extremely fatal and highly transmissible outbreak of novel coronavirus disease, the Eurozone economy started the new year on a weak footing. The resurgence of infection rates in autumn and the renewed burden on healthcare systems led the governments to impose tough containment measures to prevent the spread of the virus. Consequently, Eurozone fell into a technical recession as the GDP declined in the fourth quarter of 2020 (-0...

EUROZONE Economic Outlook - Q3 2020, September 2020

Despite the recent rebound in economic activity, the outlook in Euro Area remains extremely uncertain and is subject to exceptional risks given the spread of new infections in many European countries. Sluggish global demand and the recent appreciation of the single currency exchange rate could hamper exports and inflation outlook. In addition, lower energy prices, cautious household consumption and higher unemployment rates are expected to drag inflation rates even lower.

Global Markets Update | Equities, Bonds, Currencies & Commodities, Feb...

Greek Property Market Note, June 2020

The pandemic is expected to have a negative impact on the Greek Real Estate, but whether this impact will shrink or slow down the growth of the market remains to be seen. There is still a lot of uncertainty around the magnitude of the Covid-19 impact in this sector of the economy. A moderate optimism can be derived though from the results of the first quarter of 2020 in most of the submarkets and from the fact that Greece avoided the healthcare crisis of other countries.

EUROZONE Macro Note, December 2021 | VRS Research Team

Although the Covid-19 pandemic and the emergence of new – highly transmissible variants – continue to pose unprecedented challenges, the Euro area economy managed to regain the pre-pandemic output level during the third quarter of 2021, significantly faster than previously expected. However, the gradual reimplementation of containment measures, supply chain disruptions, and extremely high energy prices are expected to slow economic activity.
