Italy: Consumer confidence decreases slightly in April
April 27, 2016
The National Institute of Statistics’ (Istat) consumer confidence index declined from a revised 114.9 in March (previously reported: 115.0) to 114.2 in April. The result was below market expectations of a slight increase to 115.0.
April’s result reflected a deterioration in households’ willingness to buy durable goods as well as in their assessment of the current general economic situation.
