Latvia - Trade Balance (Euros)

Following the sharpest GDP contraction since the 2009-10 global financial crisis in Q2 as a result of the Covid-19 blow, recent data hints at a recovery that is losing traction. After a slight rebound in July, industrial production slumped again in August as manufacturing output faltered. Moreover, retail sales growth waned again in the same month, which, combined with a still-elevated, despite gradually falling, unemployment rate and deeply entrenched pessimism among consumers in Q3, bodes ill for private consumption. The surge in new virus infections from mid-September onwards may come to further restrain spending heading into Q4. On a positive note, Fitch Ratings affirmed the country’s credit rating at A- and lifted its outlook from negative to stable on 9 October, citing the economy’s relative resilience to the pandemic’s shock and the government’s favorable financing conditions.
