Central Europe Outlook: Externally Driven Growth and Inflation

The recovery has broadened, but growth continues to be primarily export-led, benefiting from close trade ties to Germany. Poland, the region’s largest and most domestically oriented economy will remain the growth leader. Rising inflation will force central banks in Poland and the Czech Republic to hike rates this year, while Hungary’s central bank is likely to stay on hold until late 2011. Fiscal tightening will weigh on regional growth in the forecast period.
