ECB Vice President Luis de Guindos said in a speech that Eurozone economy is “continuing to grow” and the growth is “broad-based across countries and sectors”. He added that “during this recovery, the countries that were most affected by the crisis have regained competitiveness thanks to a combination of accommodative monetary policy, fiscal consolidation and structural reforms.”

However, de Guindos warned that “challenges remain in the form of low trend growth compared with other advanced economies, and persistently high public and private debt levels in a number of euro area countries.”. He urged further efforts to “strengthen productivity growth and boost productive investments to lift long-term potential growth.”
