Economic situation

Growth slows down, but remains robust

2016_CR_WE_Ireland_Real_GDP

The Irish economy grew 5.2% in 2014 and 6.8% in 2015 – a particularly strong performance compared to the rest of the eurozone. The rebound was mainly due to a sharp increase in exports of goods and services, triggered by a reduction in wages, but also because of a drop in domestic demand for imports. Investments also recorded a major surge.

In 2016 the economic rebound is expected to continue, although at a slower pace (up 4.3%).

Investments and exports continue to rise, while private consumption is expected to grow again above 3%. Unemployment continues to decrease, to an expected rate of 8% in 2016.

International investors seem to appreciate the efforts of the government to reduce the public deficit and have regained new trust in the (long-term) sustainability of public finances.
