Industry in Malta
Malta - IndustryAvailable data for the second quarter points to solid growth through the first half of the year and comes on the heels of an upbeat consumer spending-driven first quarter. Private consumption likely remained buoyant in the second quarter; the unemployment rate reached a new all-time low in May and tourist arrivals continued surging in the first two months of the quarter. On the other hand, declining imports and contracting industrial output in April and May suggest fixed investment remained weak in the quarter. This was partly due to fewer grants from the EU, which also contributed to a wider year-to-date budget deficit through May.
