Interest Rate in Greece
Greece - Interest RateThe economy seemed to have lost some traction in the final stretch of 2018, following a relatively solid showing, albeit one that was underpinned by inventory growth, in the third quarter. After rebounding strongly in November, industrial production growth cooled in December due to a contraction in manufacturing output. This, coupled with more pessimistic sentiment in both the industrial and construction sectors in the same month, point to somewhat softer business activity in Q4. On the demand front, weak retail sales growth, on average, in October–November hint at the persistence of subdued household spending in the quarter, despite improvements in the labor market and consumer confidence. Looking ahead, with the PMI and economic sentiment edging down in January, it appears the economy entered 2019 on similarly soft footing.
