The Euro area’s expected GDP growth is just 1% for the current year, according to a statement made by Jean-Claude Juncker, the Prime Minister of Luxembourg, after chairing a meeting of Euro area ministers.

He also described the expected growth as “fragile”.

This is much as one would expect in the light of recent numbers. A slow recovery seems the best the Euro area can expect, and there is a significant risk of a return to recession.
