Colombia - Current Account

Available data suggests that the relatively weak dynamics of Q1 persisted in the second quarter. Retail sales growth eased in April, which, coupled with consumers turning more pessimistic, on average, in April–May compared to the first quarter, signals that private consumption lost some strength. Furthermore, industrial production contracted for the first time in over a year in April. This, alongside the manufacturing PMI entering contractionary territory in June, following fairly positive readings in April and May, hints at softer business activity in Q2. In other news, the government announced in early June that the original fiscal deficit targets of 2.4% and 2.2% of GDP will be maintained this year and next, respectively, despite being allowed to relax them to address the influx of Venezuelan migrants. Some concern remains, however, over the credibility of the pace of fiscal consolidation.
