Trade Balance in Italy
Italy - Trade BalanceGDP grew at a slightly softer rate in sequential terms in Q3, following a healthy expansion in Q2. The slowdown was mainly driven by weaker growth in private consumption and fixed investment, while government spending rebounded. Turning to Q4, available signs are mixed: Both consumer and business confidence rose above Q3’s average in October–November, boding well for private spending and fixed investment. However, despite increasing in almost every subsector, the services PMI clocked a softer improvement in conditions in the same period. Meanwhile, industrial output and retail sales both deteriorated in October, while unemployment rose. In other news, on 3 December Fitch Ratings upgraded Italy’s credit rating to ‘BBB’ from ‘BBB-’, with a stable outlook. The country’s solid economic performance and the inflow of EU funds were key factors supporting the decision.
