The Eurozone economy is estimated to have expanded by a minimal 0.2% over the last quarter of 2018, according to preliminary estimates by the European Union’s statistics agency, Eurostat.

The stats for the Eurozone showed the weakest performance over two quarters since 2013, much of which could be attributed to the overall economic environment with a no-deal Brexit becoming more likely, the slowdown of the Chinese economy, and weak industrial production data.

Compared with the same quarter of the previous year, the 19-member Eurozone’ seasonally adjusted GDP growth rate fell further to 1.2% during the fourth quarter of 2018, down from 1.6% in the previous quarter.
