Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- The Dutch economy rebounded in the second quarter of 2014, having posted a surprise contraction in the first three months of the year. Moreover, the economy has expanded at a time when Germany, France and the broader eurozone have slowed. While we still hold to a fairly constructive view for the Dutch economy over the medium term, we warn that the eurozone slowdown and precariously weak inflation across the euro area mean that the risks to our core forecasts are tilting to the downside.
Following a sharp contraction in real GDP during Q114, and given persistent sluggish demand across the euro area, the Dutch economy will post only modest growth in 2014. Moreover, with the European Central Bank (ECB)'s recent efforts to provide monetary stimulus still falling short of the shock and awe strategy that the eurozone needs to quash the threat of deflation, we warn that the Dutch economy is at increased risk of sliding back into recession.

According to the latest data provided by the Dutch Statistical Office real GDP expanded by 0.5% quarter-on-quarter during Q214, effectively reversing the 0.4% q-o-q contraction during the first three months of the year. Moreover, the Dutch economy picked up momentum at a time when the eurozone has lost steam. Indeed, on the back of a sharp reversal in the German GDP data from growth of 0.8% q-o-q in Q114 to a contraction of 0.2% in Q214, and a second successive quarter of zero growth in France, the eurozone economy stalled altogether in Q214 following anaemic growth of 0.2% in the first quarter.
