The slowdown is continuing but looks different in different countries. The United States will see a soft landing after showing surprising resilience. The euro area economy is still fragile, while the outlook for China has stabilized. Due to weak demand and high-interest rates, growth will remain anemic. Geopolitical turmoil poses downside risks, but lower inflation, high employment, and rising real wages provide hope. Key interest rates have peaked, and the Fed will begin its rate-cutting cycle by mid-2024.

The export-dependent Baltic economies have been hit hard by weak growth in the Nordic countries and Germany. After a decrease this year GDP growth will rebound in 2024.
