there were “big uncertainties, risks ahead of us” which included U.S. economic policy which he said was destroying the system of free international trade, a potentially hard Brexit and the economic slowdown in China.
There were signs that economic slowdown (in the euro zone) would last longer than the bank had expected at the start of the year, but: “we are not talking about a fall of economic growth or a recession”.
The actions of the central bank (ECB) ... have worked. They eased the conditions on the financial markets, increased demand and price growth. So for now we are keeping our present strategy.
The ECB was also expecting governments to adjust their fiscal policies to the new economic conditions.
