FRANKFURT, April 27 The euro zone's economy
continues to improve and faces fewer dangers, European Central
Bank President Mario Draghi said on Thursday, signalling a
continuing benign view of the bloc's economic prospects.
Draghi also said inflation was likely to stay low this year.
"Incoming data ... confirm that the cyclical recovery of the
euro area is becoming increasingly solid," he told a news
conference following the ECB's decision to keep its ultra-easy
monetary policy unchanged.
He said the risks to the economy remained primarily negative
but that "downside risks have diminished".
Draghi said the big risk to the euro zone economy came from
the slow pace of structural reforms in member states.
