Italy: Economic growth moderates in Q3

November 13, 2015

In the third quarter of this year, GDP grew 0.2% over the previous quarter in seasonally- and working-day adjusted terms, according to an advance estimate released by the National Statistics Office (ISTAT) on 13 November. The result came in slightly below the 0.3% growth tallied in Q2 and matched market expectations. It also marked the lowest reading since Q4 2014. More detailed data will be released on 1 December.

In annual terms, GDP grew 0.9% in Q3, which was above the 0.6% rise observed in Q2 and marked the fastest expansion since Q2 2011.

The Bank of Italy expects the economy to expand 0.7% in 2015 and 1.5% in 2016. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists, however, see the economy expanding 0.2% in 2015, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2016, panelists expect the economy to expand 0.6%.
