Retail Sales in Greece
Greece - Retail SalesOutput growth was likely resilient in the first quarter of this year. The services sector benefited from an improving labor market and reduced Covid restrictions while industrial output grew at the fastest pace in 16 months in March. That said, the manufacturing PMI dipped to an 11-month low in March, as the fallout from the Russia-Ukraine war hit sentiment. Moreover, consumer confidence worsened during the quarter amid soaring prices, which could have limited private consumption. In Q2, the economy is likely losing steam. In April, consumer confidence continued to worsen and inflation rose to the highest level in 27 years, which is likely tempering private spending. However, the manufacturing PMI improved slightly in April. Meanwhile, in early May, Greece removed virtually all remaining Covid-19 restrictions, which should help spur the tourism industry heading into the summer season.
