Trade Balance in Malta

Malta Trade Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Malta - Trade Balance

GDP growth softened in annual terms in Q3, due largely to a less favorable base effect. The expansions in private consumption, exports and imports lost steam, while fixed investment and government consumption growth picked up. However, underlying activity was strong, as suggested by a faster quarter-on-quarter expansion. Turning to Q4, momentum has likely eased somewhat as Covid-19 cases surge at home and abroad, with economic sentiment dipping and consumer confidence falling sharply in November. Moreover, the tourism industry is likely being dampened by the UK government’s recent tightening of travel restrictions—the UK is the key source of visitor arrivals to Malta. That said, unlike European neighbors, the Maltese authorities have so far avoided reimposing tough Covid-19 curbs, which should be cushioning the domestic economy.
