Eurozone economy ready to take off
After a long period of restrictions which sent the eurozone economy into a double-dip recession, the outlook is finally brightening and activity looks ready to take off. An improved medical situation and the acceleration in the vaccination process will allow European economies to reopen, leading to a strong period of growth for the remainder of the year. As the economy recovers, inflation concerns are gradually replacing growth concerns, but we still expect eurozone inflation to remain moderate beyond the temporary rise in prices seen this year.

Asia’s medium term growth outlook and its implications for major cities
Over the next five years, economic growth across Asia is likely to diverge especially with two of the giants moving in opposite directions; China slowing and India starting to realise its potential. This has implications for how the cities in these two countries are likely to expand. Major cities in southeast Asia area expected to perform relatively well but there are contrasting fortunes elsewhere. For example, in advanced Asia, the major cities of Australia should exhibit an impressive rate of jobs growth. Our expectations for the likes of Melbourne and Perth contrasts starkly with major East Asian cities in Japan and South Korea, where the pressures of ageing populations is dragging on the potential for growth in output and jobs. We present both a top-down medium-term macro outlook and tie that to how major cities in Asia are likely to develop over the next 5 years.Find Out More
A health-check on China’s real estate and construction industries: Are we still on life support?
China’s property downturn continues to weigh on the outlook. Can we be hopeful that the economy will successfully decouple from its old property-led growth model? How much of an offset can state-led construction provide as authorities look to prop the economy up? Join us in a discussion between Louise Loo our China Macro-economist and April Skinner our China Construction economist, as we address some of the FAQs around China’s housing and construction sectors and take a pulse-check on property’s multi-year correction process. Key talking points: How far does China’s real estate downturn have to go? What are the longer term implications for building construction? How much can state-led infrastructure projects prop up the economy? Will the “New Three" Industries keep the economy afloat? Supply chain risks and what this means for costs and construction.Find Out More
