Real estate convictions: France in the 1st half of 2019
2019: global growth at the mercy of uncertainties
While at the end of 2017 business was accelerating in almost all areas of the world, and this momentum was expected to be maintained in 2018 and 2019, certain risks identified have become reality and the goalposts have moved.
The escalating tensions between the United States and China, the macroeconomic tensions of certain emerging economies, the marked slowdown of the automobile industry in Germany and the standardisation of the monetary policy in the developed countries have contributed to the weakening of global expansion, after having disrupted the financial markets at the end of 2018. A further slowdown in economic growth is therefore expected for 2019.
