Economic development in Europe lost significant momentum in 2023. According to estimates by the EU Commission, the economic area recorded only minimal growth and a weak economic situation overall. In order to counteract the high inflation, the European Central Bank (ECB) raised interest rates in several steps (interest rate turnaround). This restrictive monetary policy dampened demand and investment. Despite a slowdown over the course of the year, inflation remained well above the ECB's target in most countries. From a global perspective, there was also little economic stimulus, as important trading partners of the European economy also experienced a slowdown. Geopolitical tensions such as the conflict in the Middle East also increased uncertainty in the economy.
