GDP growth has been losing momentum gradually as productive investment starts to decline. Labour resources are nearing depletion, but labour shortages have failed to prompt intensified capital formation. A high dependence on the car industry may become a problem. Signs of recession in Germany are spilling over into Czech manufacturing. Consumption remains the backbone of a subdued output growth. We forecast average growth of around 2.5% in the medium run.
