KOF ECONOMIC BAROMETER – STABILISATION CLOSE TO LONG-TERM AVERAGE

In June 2014, the KOF Economic Barometer rose slightly. After it had fallen three times in a row, it now climbed from 100.1 (revised from 99.8) to 100.4. The barometer thus continues to linger very close to its long-term average reading. Accordingly, during the next few months the Swiss economy can be expected to run unspectacularly.

KOF Summer Forecast 2014

SWISS ECONOMY EXPANDS IN FAVOURABLE ENVIRONMENT

At 1.8% and 2.0% respectively, Swiss GDP will record relatively strong growth, both in the current and in the coming year. The number of jobs is still rising and consumption is shoring up the economy. In 2015, export growth will accelerate thanks to the positive global economic performance. All in all, price pressures will remain low.
