Greece - Current Account (billions of Euros)

Following consistent criticism over the reliability of its data, the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) has ceased issuing flash GDP estimates as it reviews ways to improve the quality of its releases. However, incoming monthly data suggests that the economy likely grew again in Q2, albeit at a weak pace. While the labor market is slowly improving, austerity measures and high unemployment are weighing on household consumption. Other indicators point to an uneven performance in recent months: Industrial production growth slowed in June, but exports expanded at a double-digit pace. On a positive note, Fitch Ratings raised Greece’s credit rating from CCC to B- on the back of reduced political risks and continuing GDP growth in August.
