Iceland - GDP

Iceland’s economy performed strongly again last year, with GDP growth jumping over 10.0% in Q3. Growth in activity was supported by a buoyant external sector, which was in turn helped by a booming tourism industry. Earlier this month, Iceland’s political parties reached an agreement to form a government following months of stalled talks. The center-right coalition, led by the Independence Party with two junior partners, holds a slim majority in Parliament. Shortly after taking office, the new administration announced important reforms to boost growth. As part of a long-term plan to rein in public debt, measures will be taken to restrain public expenditure, increase productivity and privatize public properties, with a particular focus on state-owned commercial banks. Moreover, the government intends to create a countercyclical stability fund to control the proceeds from the country’s energy resources.
