Current Account in Ukraine
Ukraine - Current AccountThe economy expanded at a softer rate in the third quarter amid a broad-based slowdown: Growth in private consumption, fixed investment and exports moderated, while government spending swung into contraction. Turning to Q4, available data paints an uncertain picture for the economy: Retail sales increased at a softer pace in October–November compared to Q3, while consumer confidence slid sequentially in the same period, hinting at weaker household spending. Similarly, industrial production growth lost steam in annual terms in October–November compared to Q3. Meanwhile, tensions with Russia have continued to escalate after around 100,000 Russian troops amassed near the border in early December, with the potential threat of conflict continuing to loom. Diplomatic talks between Ukraine, Russia and the U.S. are scheduled for 9–10 January in Geneva.
