Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/12/2015 -- A gradual improvement in household spending will help Greece emerge from depression in 2015 and 2016. But a lack of significant growth drivers means growth rates will remain anaemic over the coming years, with persistently weak eurozone growth posing risks to this already tepid outlook.

We expect household spending to be the main driver of real GDP growth over 2015 and 2016, adding an average of 0.7 percentage points (pp) to headline growth figures. This reflects a stabilisation, rather than a full-blown recovery, of household demand. Declining domestic prices and weaker global commodity prices are offering some degree of support to disposable incomes. Consumer confidence is also improving, as the country prepares to exit its troika bailout and returns to growth.

Headline Industry Data (local currency)

- 2015 per capita food consumption = 0.1%; forecast compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 2014-2019 = +0.8%.
- 2015 alcoholic drink value sales = -1.3%; forecast CAGR 2014-2019 = +0.1%.
- 2015 soft drink value sales = +0.3%; forecast CAGR 2014-2019 = +0.9%.
- 2015 mass grocery retail sales = +0.4%; forecast CAGR 2014-2019 = +0.8%.

Harma Fruit To Set Up EUR6mn Plant : It was reported in April 2014 that Greece-based importer-exporter Harma Fruit was planning to set up a EUR6mn (USD8.29mn) packing, coldstorage and distribution centre for fresh produce in Macedonia. The centre will be located in the Macedonian town of Gevgelija and will be operated by Agritera. The strategic location close to the Greek border was the prime factor in the firm's decision to invest in Macedonia, according to Harma Fruit's owner Christos Kelesidies.
