Economic activity declines in October

Economic output decreased 1.8% over the prior month in seasonally-adjusted terms in October, swinging from the 2.3% expansion recorded in September. Meanwhile, the economy grew 3.5% in the rolling quarter of August–October relative to the previous quarter (May–July), coming in below the 3.7% expansion logged in July–September.

Mainland GDP—which excludes hydrocarbon extraction and related services—flatlined in October, down from the 0.8% increase logged in September. In the rolling quarter of August–September, the mainland economy grew 2.3% from the previous rolling quarter (May–July), moderating from the 2.7% expansion registered in July–September.

Domestically, October’s decline was due to government spending declining 0.2% in seasonally-adjusted month-on-month terms, swinging from September’s 0.4% growth. Meanwhile, private consumption growth came in at September’s 1.2% in October. Lastly, fixed investment growth flatlined in October, improving from the 1.7% drop logged in the previous month.
