Fiscal Balance in Ireland

Ireland Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Ireland - Fiscal Balance

Available data points to slowing economic momentum in the final quarter of 2019, after activity rebounded in the third quarter. Although the manufacturing PMI averaged higher in Q4 from Q3, it remained downbeat amid increasing stock levels among firms, while manufacturing output contracted in October–November. Meanwhile, consumer sentiment rose to a five-month high in December, reflecting easing worries over a disorderly Brexit; however, it remained pessimistic overall, pointing to softer household spending in Q4. On the political front, Ireland will hold a general election on 8 February. While it is set to be a tight race between the ruling Fine Gael party and its main opponent Fianna Fáil, policy continuity is expected given both frontrunners have similar approaches to economic policy and Brexit.
