Euro-Area Economy Set to Accelerate on Germany, France: Chart

Euro-area gross domestic product probably expanded 0.5 percent in the fourth quarter, the most since the start of 2016. That’s according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey ahead of data due at 11 a.m. in Luxembourg on Tuesday. The pickup was driven by faster growth in its two biggest economies -- Germany and France -- as well as continued economic strength in Spain.
