Financial News: ECB's Draghi Says Eurozone Economic Recovery Momentum Set

ECB's Draghi Says Eurozone Economic Recovery Momentum Set To Continue

09/25/2017 - 09:58:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - Euro area economic recovery is now firm and broad-based, and the latest data suggest the momentum is set to continue in the period ahead, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said Monday.

"The ongoing recovery is, crucially, driven by domestic forces, and the labor market has notably improved," Draghi said at a hearing at the European Parliament in Brussels.

He also said that the employment gains and the rising household wealth are supporting the private consumption outlook. Further, investment is improving, thanks to very favorable financing conditions, he added.

Yet, the firm economic recovery still needs to translate more convincingly into stronger inflation dynamics, Draghi reiterated.

"Overall, we are becoming more confident that inflation will eventually head to levels in line with our inflation aim, but we also know that a very substantial degree of monetary accommodation is still needed for the upward inflation path to materialize," the ECB Chief said.

He stressed that the recent volatility in the euro exchange rate was a source of uncertainty that requires monitoring with regard to its possible implications for the medium-term outlook for price stability.

"We therefore need to be patient and persistent," Draghi said.

The ECB will decide later this year on a re-calibration of policy measures that maintains the degree of monetary support that the euro area economy still needs, he said.
