GDP in Malta
Malta - GDPLast year’s positive economic momentum likely carried over into the first quarter of 2017. Industrial production grew robustly in the January-February period, with firms benefiting from greater demand for exports, while producer sentiment remained upbeat throughout Q1. Moreover, private consumption continued to be underpinned by buoyant labor market conditions and moderate inflation, which translated into elevated consumer confidence. Further positive news came from the tourism sector, as the total number of inbound tourists grew by almost a fourth in annual terms in the first three months of the year, a testament to the sector’s inherent strength. The solid economic performance was reflected in the government’s finances, with revenue growth outpacing expenditure growth in Q1, which translated into an improved fiscal balance.
