Fiscal Balance in Israel

Israel Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Israel - Fiscal Balance

Preliminary data showed that the economy shifted into a higher gear in Q4 2018 owing to stronger private consumption growth and a rebound in fixed investment. Early data for Q1 of this year sent mixed signals, however. Sentiment increased among businesses and households in January, although the latter remained firmly entrenched in pessimistic territory. A pick-up in the economic activity index of the Central Bank further suggests positive spillovers from Q4. However, the manufacturing sector had a rocky start to the year as the PMI fell into negative territory for the first time in nearly three years, while net exports continued to drag on the economy in January. Meanwhile, Israel’s attorney general intends to press corruption charges against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who could face a tough battle in the general election on 9 April with his Likud party trailing in the polls.
