Recent figures reaffirm that eurozone economic weakness deepened in mid-2019, notably in the industrial sector. The protracted US-China trade war and possible escalation in the US-EU trade war, a sharper slowdown in China, Italian political uncertainty, and a No-Deal Brexit event will continue to inhibit a eurozone recovery in 2020. Likewise, business confidence, export-oriented manufacturing, and business investment will remain subdued. On a brighter note, the consumer, services, and construction sectors are sources of economic resilience. Careful and deeper segmentation as well as targeted investments to enhance firms' value propositions will allow MNCs to capture opportunities in 2020, while they manage their costs to increase competitiveness.
