    Following healthy growth in the first half of the year, many economies in Central America and the Caribbean seem to be going through a soft patch in the second half. Nonetheless, improving global conditions next year are expected to buttress stronger economic growth in the region. Panelists revised up their 2015 growth prospects for Belize, the Dominican Republic and Guatemala. Meanwhile, the growth projections for 6 of the 12 economies surveyed were unchanged over last month. Only Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Trinidad and Tobago experienced downward revisions. Panama is still expected to be the region’s fastest growing economy in 2015, while Puerto Rico, at the other end of the spectrum, is projected to be the worst performer.

    The outlook for ex-Japan Asia stabilized this month following a deterioration in the previous period. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists left their regional growth projections for 2015 at the previous month’s 6.3%. The stable growth prospects for the region primarily reflected that a downward revision to China’s forecast was compensated for by an improvement in the outlook for India. In addition, the forecasts for 7 of the 15 economies surveyed were unchanged over the previous month. Panelists surveyed by FocusEconomics left their 2014 growth projections unchanged at 6.2%.

    Panelists revised down the 2015 GDP outlook for the Euro area for a third consecutive month and now expect the region’s economy to expand 1.1% in 2015, which is 0.1 percentage points below last month's projection. The result reflected downward revisions to the outlook for 9 of the 18 economies surveyed (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Portugal and Slovakia). The forecasts for two economies (Ireland and Malta) were revised upward, while panelists did not change the outlook for the remaining seven economies. Meanwhile, panelists left the 2014 GDP growth projection unchanged at last month’s 0.8%.

    Growth forecasts for Eastern Europe deteriorated again this month and remained on the downward trajectory that began over a year ago. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists cut their projections for the region by 0.2 percentage points over last month and now expect GDP to expand 1.7% in 2015, marking the 11th downward revision to the regional outlook in the last 12 months. Once again, deteriorating prospects are mainly due to cuts in the growth forecasts for Russia and Ukraine, which account for the lion’s share of this month’s drop in the regional projection for 2015. However, with accumulating signs of yet another slowdown in the Eurozone—a key trading partner for most economies in the region—another 7 of the 14 countries surveyed experienced downward revisions. The forecasts for five countries remained unchanged and none of the countries saw an upgrade to its growth forecast this month. That said, most countries will experience faster growth than in 2014—only Hungary and Slovenia are expected to record slower growth next year. The regional recovery is likely to continue in 2016, when output is seen growing 2.6%.
