    A tougher external environment is seen causing growth to slow to a six-year low in 2019

    Growth revived in the first quarter of the year, after slowing sharply in the second half of 2018. A solid domestic economy drove the acceleration, with household spending picking up, boosted by a falling unemployment rate and wages growing at the fastest rate in a decade. Meanwhile, exports growth slowed amid the turbulent external environment, although overall the external sector still contributed modestly to growth. Incoming data for the second quarter suggests that growth remains broadly on pace, but with diverging dynamics in the economy. The unemployment rate dropped to a fresh over decade-low in April, but data for the industrial sector continued to disappoint with production contracting again in April. Meanwhile, a summit of the European Union’s leaders failed to iron out who should take over the Union’s top jobs this year in June. Key positions such as the EU Commission president and ECB president are set to change hands at a challenging time amid Brexit, trade tensions and weak growth.

    Although growth in MENA is expected to pick up slightly this year, the performance will differ greatly among countries within the region, with Iran contracting yet again and Iraq rebounding strongly. Overall, oil-exporting economies will be affected by an uncertain global oil market, while weak global demand and political unrest are broader downside risks to the outlook.

    Regional growth is now thus expected to hold steady from 2018’s modest outturn

    Growth prospects were cut for the fourth month running chiefly on weaker projected activity in Angola and South Africa. Regional growth is now thus expected to hold steady from 2018’s modest outturn. The outlook is challenging: A sharper slowdown in major trading partners, commodity price swings, policy uncertainty and slow progress on reforms domestically are key downside risks.
