Iceland - Current Account

Following a strong second-quarter performance, economic activity likely remained solid in the third quarter, buttressed notably by strong tourist inflows during the country’s high season. Indeed, though overnight stays were stable year-on-year in July, they increased more than 10% annually in both August and September, boding well for service exports. Moreover, the unemployment rate fell to a one-year low in Q3, in a positive sign for private consumption. Having said that, the krona has weakened markedly so far in Q4, while the powerful labor unions recently demanded steep minimum wage increases over the next three years, ahead of upcoming labor negotiations. Both of these events could stoke inflation going forward.
