Unemployment in Malta
Malta - UnemploymentEconomic activity appeared to have moderated but likely remained robust in Q1 2019, following a strong Q4 2018 propelled by buoyant household spending and sky-rocketing government spending. In the first quarter, labor market conditions remained tight and in January-February retail sales expanded strongly. In the same period, however, growth in tourist arrivals decelerated sharply and, in February, tourist expenditures even contracted. Moreover, both business and consumer confidence weakened in Q1. On the fiscal front, the government recorded another budget surplus in 2018; the public debt-to-GDP ratio declined further. That said, a budget deficit was recorded through the first two months of 2019 due to a surge in capital spending and a sizable increase in recurrent expenditures.
