Trade Balance in Italy

Italy - Trade Balance (Euros)

Former arch-enemies, the 5 Star Movement (M5S) and the Democratic Party (PD), formed a new government headed by former Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, which was sworn in on 5 September. Italy's government bond yield dropped on a swift resolution to the political crisis and the new government’s clearly more pro-European stance. While a deal with EU institutions on the 2020 budget, thus, appears more likely, the new cabinet seems to have a more interventionist approach, which makes the delivery of pro-market economic reforms more unlikely. Meanwhile, revised national accounts data showed that growth was flat in Q2, with both external and domestic demand making a null contribution to growth, which highlighted the broad-based weaknesses within Italy’s ailing economy. Available data for Q3 was also lackluster: Industrial production contracted again in July, and the manufacturing PMI remained entrenched in contractionary territory in August.
