External Debt in Latvia

Latvia - External Debt

Economic growth sped up in annual terms in Q1 2022, as less stringent Covid-19 measures led to a strong performance from the services sector. Annual retail sales averaged markedly higher in Q1 compared to Q4, while the unemployment rate dropped to its lowest level since June 2020 in March. That said, subdued activity in the producing sectors capped the overall improvement. Moreover, price pressures have continued to build up since the outset of the year—inflation hit an over 13-year high in April—due to markedly higher food prices, and are only expected to rise further in the near term. In response, Prime Minister Krišjanis Karinš replaced both the Interior and Economics Ministers, aiming for better management of the impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Nonetheless, the move has been widely criticized as untimely due to the currently spiraling energy crisis.
