Industry in Ecuador
Ecuador - IndustryAn acceleration in economic activity throughout the third quarter suggests the economy sped up from Q2. While oil production was higher on average in Q3 compared to the previous quarter, the output of the petroleum sector in the first nine months was below the same period of last year, as the country’s state-owned oil company Petroamazonas EP slashed production. Reflecting the trend in oil production, export growth picked up in July and August before moderating in September. Meanwhile, a strong inflow of remittances has boosted household incomes and supported solid growth in private consumption. In other news, the government recently presented the 2019 budget to Congress. It aims to gradually reduce the fiscal deficit to 3.2%, mainly thanks to higher oil revenues and by cutting public sector wages.
