Unemployment in Lithuania
Lithuania - UnemploymentAnnual growth recovered vigorously in Q4 2018, following a weak outturn in Q3, with rising output in the manufacturing, construction, wholesale and retail trade sectors spearheading the acceleration. On the expenditure side, private consumption appears to have remained in the driver’s seat: A tight labor market and easing inflationary pressures likely propped up household consumption growth in Q4. That said, the external sector appears to have lost impetus in Q4, with merchandise exports contracting for the first time in over two years in December. Meanwhile, survey-based data suggests healthy domestic demand dynamics carried over into the first quarter of the new year. Consumer confidence surged to the highest point on record in January—and, notably, in face of intensifying campaign ahead of May’s presidential elections.
