Summary:

The growth outlook remains favorable, but risks are tilted to the downside. Sound economic and fiscal policies together with favorable global conditions in recent years translated into solid growth and a decline in unemployment to record post-crisis lows. Growth prospects remain favorable, but risks are to the downside and include a weaker-than-expected global growth, a disorderly Brexit, changes in international tax rules, and a sharp tightening of global financial conditions. Domestically, rising housing prices pose affordability challenges and could exacerbate the already high household indebtedness.
