Trade Balance in Belgium

Belgium - Trade Balance

Economic growth gained steam in quarter-on-quarter terms in the third quarter, mainly due to swifter expansions in both private and public spending. That said, a complicated domestic situation paints a less positive picture for activity in Q4: A spike in price pressures in October–November and gradually deteriorating consumer confidence in the quarter will have likely weighed on private spending. Moreover, the most recent wave of Covid-19 infections kept business confidence subdued in both October and November, possibly capping capital spending. The ongoing surge in new cases also prompted the government to tighten restrictions for the third time in recent weeks on 3 December, mainly focusing on the education sector. Furthermore, authorities are contemplating even tougher measures for the holidays, as neighboring countries continue to impose similar restrictions.
