Commenting on the on the release, Jonathan Sequeira, Rina Jio and Andrew Tilton, analysts at Goldman Sachs, remarked:

"Given the upside surprise, incorporating actual Q1 data would mechanically push our annual real GDP growth forecast up to 6.0% in 2022, from 5.7% previously. However, as the reopening rebound was faster-than-expected in Q1 despite the Omicron wave (we had built in more weakness in Q1, with a bigger rebound in Q2), we scale back our sequential growth forecasts for Q2 growth by revising it down to 1.2% s.a. qoq (from 1.5% s.a. qoq, previously). The overall effect of these changes is to keep our annual GDP growth forecast unchanged at 5.7%.”

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect GDP to expand 5.2% in 2022, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. In 2023, GDP is seen growing 5.2%.
