The indicator was worsened compared to the previous estimate of 0.7%

Eurozone seasonally adjusted gross domestic product rose by 0.6% in the second quarter, according to the operational data from the European Union’s Statistical Office, readjusted slightly lower from a preliminary level of 0.7%, reports Investing.com.

On an annual basis, the Eurozone GDP increased by 3.9% compared to the initial index of 4.0%.

Thus, the indicator was worsened in comparison with the previous estimate of 0.7%.

Analysts did not expect a revision from the previously announced level, according to Trading Economics.

As GMK Center reported earlier, the economy of 19 euro zone countries  in the first quarter increased by 0.3% compared to the previous quarter.

Also, the European Commission decreased Eurozone GDP growth forecasts for 2022-2023. According to the current forecast, the eurozone economy will grow by 2.7% this year, not 4% as expected in the February forecast. The GDP growth forecast for 2023 has been downgraded from 2.7% to 2.3%.

GMK Center wrote before, that because of the Russian Federation aggression against Ukraine the entire system of world trade is partially broken. Colossal sanctions against Russia also played their role. Thus, the recovery of supply chains is not expected before 2023.
