Estonia - Current Account

The economy accelerated in the third quarter, led by a marked improvement in the external sector as export growth more than doubled and imports cooled. On a less positive note, domestic demand hit another speedbump in Q3. Household spending halved and fixed investment decelerated sharply in the quarter chiefly due to contracting public investment activity and a slowing inflow of EU development funds; public spending, however, jumped. Turning to the fourth quarter, private sector conditions seem to have weakened as industrial output contracted in October and business confidence dipped to an over four-year low in November. In addition, slumping retail sales in October and deteriorating consumer sentiment in October–November suggest consumer spending lost further traction in the quarter.
