Belgium - Current Account

Economic momentum remained upbeat in quarter-on-quarter terms in Q3 amid a robust performance from the services sector, according to a preliminary reading. That said, available data for the fourth quarter paints a less positive picture for activity: A spike in price pressures and muted consumer confidence in October likely weighed on private spending at the outset of the quarter. Moreover, the most recent wave of Covid-19 infections caused business confidence to remain subdued in October, which likely capped capital spending. This ongoing surge in new cases also prompted authorities to tighten restrictions from 20 November: Proof of vaccination will be required in additional spaces and remote working will become mandatory where possible. Nevertheless, authorities have resisted imposing stricter lockdown measures.
