External Debt in Israel

Israel External Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Israel - External Debt

Following three quarters of rapid expansion, economic activity shrank in quarter-on-quarter terms during Q1, with private consumption, public spending, fixed investment and exports all weakening. Nonetheless, the economy’s underlying strengths remained intact: The labor market tightened notably, while Covid-19 restrictions were eased. The economy should return to growth in Q2: In April, the unemployment rate tumbled below its pre-pandemic level, while the Composite State of the Economy Index rose at its fastest pace in six months. Moreover, visitor arrivals were up 28% from the prior month in April, and the scrapping of all remaining travel restrictions from mid-May will be boosting tourism towards the end of the quarter. Finally, the global energy crisis is benefiting Israel’s gas sector: The government recently renewed gas exploration and hopes to soon reach a deal to supply gas to Europe.
