The 19-member eurozone is expected to grow at its fastest pace in a decade this year, with gross domestic product growth beating forecasts and projected to reach 2.2%, well outpacing the United Kingdom, according to a European Commission report released on Thursday.
UK GDP growth for 2017 was downgraded to 1.5% - from 1.8% in the previous forecast in the spring - with the prediction for 2018 unchanged at 1.3% and a gloomier 1.1% for 2019, when Britain is due formally to leave the EU.

Eurozone inflation is also expected to remain broadly flat at 1.5% in 2017, down from a 1.6% forecast previously, decelerating to 1.4% next year before rising marginally to 1.6% in 2019.
