Economic activity grew at a strong pace in July–August, gaining steam from Q2’s average amid a surge in the construction sector. Moreover, both merchandise exports and imports grew at faster rates on average in July–September compared to Q2. Turning to Q4, thanks to a swift vaccination campaign and a dramatic fall in the number of new Covid-19 cases, authorities recently opted to ease mobility-related restrictions from 1 November and business-related restrictions from 1 December. Among the most important changes, businesses that require proof of vaccination may begin to operate at full capacity. Regardless, starting from 8 January 2022, all firms must require vaccine certificates.
