Imports in Belarus

Belarus Imports (%) | Economic News & Forecasts

Belarus - Imports (percent change)

Economic activity gained considerable steam in Q2, chiefly due to upbeat manufacturing output. Moving on to Q3, however, early signs suggest a slowdown from Q2 amid several headwinds: Externally, freshly imposed sanctions and a spike in Covid-19 cases denting demand from Russia—Belarus’ main trading partner—will be dragging on exports. Meanwhile, the Central Bank’s tighter stance could be hampering new loans, potentially hindering private spending. Moreover, cumulative data shows that fixed investment—which has remained downbeat so far this year—deteriorated in July, likely as a result of geopolitical tensions and instability. In other news, the IMF’s SDR allocation released on 23 August will provide Belarus with foreign reserves of almost USD 1.0 billion, somewhat offsetting the negative effects of the latest sanctions on the country’s external position.
