GDP per capita in Belarus
Belarus - GDP per capita (Euros)The economy contracted for the first time in over three years in Q1 2020, following a healthy expansion in Q4 2019. Industrial production fell markedly in Q1, which, coupled with shrinking merchandise exports in January–February, spearheaded the overall contraction. On a slightly more positive note, an acceleration in retail sales in Q1 suggests consumer spending has held up reasonably well despite a depreciating ruble, as the government resisted growing international pressure to impose lockdown measures and kept the economy largely open for business. Turning to Q2, the economic backdrop seems to have worsened further: Despite the absence of strict restrictions, both household spending and investment activity likely tanked in April on deteriorating sentiment as the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases ballooned. On the external front, widespread lockdowns and damaged global supply chains seemingly continued to weigh on exports through April.
