Stable Economic Prospects
ZEW-Erste Group Bank Economic Sentiment Indicator for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)(lifePR) ( Mannheim, )
In April 2015 the experts' assessment of the current economic situation for the CEE region has declined by 25.9 points to a level of minus 14.8 points. Among the individual countries the largest decrease is displayed by the respective indicator for Romania (decrease by 20.0 points).
Information concerning further indicators for the CEE region, the Eurozone, the individual CEE countries covered by the analysis, and Austria can be found in the table at the bottom of the press release. The answers of all survey participants are taken into account for the calculation of the indicators for the CEE region, the Eurozone and Turkey. The answers of the Turkish survey participants are not incorporated into the calculation of the indicators for individual CEE countries and Austria, because their high participation share in the survey could cause significant biases in the survey results.
Survey Procedure and Methodology
The Financial Market Survey CEE is a survey carried out among financial market experts by the Centre for European Economic Research in Mannheim (ZEW) and Erste Group Bank AG, Vienna. The target of this survey is to develop indicators describing the economic conditions in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) as well as in Austria.
The CEE region observed in the survey consists of Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and, since October 2010, Turkey.
The financial experts are surveyed about their assessment of the current business situation, the medium-term prospects of the respective economies and their expectations as to the development of the inflation rate, the short- and long-term interest rates, exchange rates and stock prices on a six-month time horizon. The analysts' assessments reflect the qualitative direction of the estimated changes. The quarterly 'Financial Market Report CEE' contains the results for every Central and Eastern European country in detail.
