Swiss Economy Probably Expanded 0.4% at the End of 2016: Chart


 Bloomberg

(Bloomberg) -- Nearly two years since a surge in the franc threatened to choke off exports and cause a recession, Switzerland’s economy appears to have regained much of its old form. Gross domestic product probably expanded 0.4 percent in the final three months of last year, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg before data are released on Thursday. That trend is set to continue in coming quarters, analysts say.
