The French economy is expected to grow by 1% in 2015 and by 1½% in 2016. The limited ability of the French government to introduce structural reforms is not a good sign for economic growth in the long term.
We expect the Belgian economy to grow by around 1¼% in 2015, supported by household consumption and exports. There will be further economic growth (1½%) in 2016, driven by the global economy and investment, but consumption growth will then slow down.
