According to media reports, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) Chief, Thomas Jordan, stated that the Swiss economy is likely to show weak growth dynamics in 2013 and will pick up momentum as the year progresses. He further said that for the full year 2012, the central bank still expects 1.0% growth. He also added that the uncertainties are large and the risks are clearly on the downside. At the same time, he brushed aside concerns that the Swiss economy would slip into recession in the third quarter due to the impact of recent developments in the eurozone, but admitted that Switzerland will experience “very low growth rates” in the third and fourth quarters of 2012.
