Luxembourg - Current Account

Luxembourg’s economy lost some steam in Q4 2018, held back by cooling domestic demand. Household spending took a hit despite higher wages and record-low unemployment. Fixed investment, on the other hand, rebounded. Meanwhile, the all-important financial-services sector stumbled as market volatility squeezed investment funds at year-end. Looking at Q1, the gloomy European backdrop appears to have continued taking its toll. Business sentiment deteriorated amid lackluster manufacturing activity in Germany and France. In turn, industrial output slipped and export growth lost stride through January. On a brighter note, strong retail sales growth in January suggests that household spending may have picked up at the outset of the year.
