Iceland - Current Account

The economy shrank at a historic 9.3% rate in the second quarter, following the first quarter’s softer drop, according to preliminary data. The fallout was a direct consequence of the pandemic, and the global trade disruptions and travel restrictions that followed. Turning to Q3, available data shows a recovery could be underway: Overnight stays continued to fall in August compared to the same period last year, although at a much slower pace than in June and July, reflecting the shorter mandatory quarantine period in place since mid-August in favor of tests for new arrivals. Similarly, exports declined at a slower pace in August than in July. However, the unemployment rate rose in August after slowly decreasing since April’s peak, boding ill for private consumption ahead.
