Euro zone production jumps more than expected as economy powers on European Economics Preview: Eurozone GDP Data Due

The rate came in line with the preliminary flash estimate published on January 30.

The fourth-quarter figure follows up growth of 0.9 percent in the first three months of 2017, 0.6 percent in the second, and 0.7 percent in the third - all adjusted for price, seasonal and calendar effects.

In the final three months both the European Union and the 19-nation eurozone grew by 0.6% compared with the previous quarter.

It is the highest annual growth since 2007, when the economy expanded by 2.7%.

Metal workers and engineers across Germany won landmark wage deals this month that may see 3.9 million employees getting average annual pay raises of more than 3 percent for the next two years.

UK GDP grew by 1.8% overall in 2017, the slowest rate of increase since 2012. While the euro rose against the greenback, it held steady against the rest of major rivals. Although the pace of output growth slowed slightly compared to Q3 (up 0.7 percent), the Wiesbaden-based government statisticians emphasized Germany had witnessed a continuous expansion throughout the course of 2017.

On the other hand, France, Dutch and Portugal posted faster growth.

The two Koreas have never signed a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War, and are in a constant state of mutual distrust. Ms Kim appeared to charm South Korea's media with her near-permanent smile as she conducted a whirlwind round of diplomacy.

We look for euro area Q4 GDP to be confirmed at 0.6% q/q, with growth primarily supported by domestic demand, and in particular a rebound in investment.

The EU and the 19-nation eurozone both grew by 0.6% in the final quarter of previous year.

The Federal Statistical Office highlighted the significant role of rising exports and government expenditure in contributing to Q4 GDP growth, while private consumption remained largely stagnant.

Italy's logged a weaker growth of 0.3 percent following third quarter's 0.4 percent expansion. Standard Chartered is forecasting eurozone growth of 2.2% in 2018 and 2% in 2019.

Eurostat also revised upwards November production figures to 1.3 per cent month-on-month from 1.0 per cent and to 3.7 per cent year-on-year from 3.2 per cent.

An acceleration in industrial production growth was not enough to prevent a slight slowdown in eurozone GDP growth in the fourth quarter, Stephen Brown, an economist at Capital Economics, said.

The European Commission has said the economic expansion in the 19-nation region is now more balanced than at any time since the financial crisis, and the International Monetary Fund has raised its global outlook for 2018.
