Lithuania - Current Account

Growth momentum appears to have softened slightly in the third quarter following the second quarter’s healthy outturn, which was underpinned by buoyant investment activity and sturdier consumer demand. Industrial production fell at the sharpest pace in over three years in August, reflecting plummeting mining and quarrying output and a downturn in the all-important manufacturing sub-sector. On top of that, retail sales slowed to an 18-month low in the same month amid an uptick in the unemployment rate, signaling weaker private spending. On the external front, merchandise exports slipped in July–August on faltering demand from the EU and seemingly remained weak in September, with consumer confidence falling to a year-to-date low and economic sentiment edging down in the month.
