Eurozone growth rate improves
There was no shortage of European economic data today - but the most important was the overall figure, with the Eurozone growing 0.5 percent in the final quarter of 2016, taking annual growth to 1.8 percent for the year. That's behind UK growth for 2016 at 2.2% but ahead of the US, at only 1.6 percent. For more detail, Share Radio's Ed Bowsher spoke with Jennifer McKeown, Chief European Economist at Capital Economics.
