External Debt in Romania
Romania - External DebtComprehensive national accounts data revealed that growth moderated in the second quarter as intensifying price pressures ate into household spending growth. In contrast, fixed investment soared, bolstered by buoyant construction activity and improved absorption of EU-linked funds. Exports, meanwhile, came under pressure from shakier Eurozone demand, weighing on the headline reading. Turning to the third quarter, upbeat retail sales in July hint at sustained expenditure-side momentum; however, a fall in both industrial production and merchandise exports in the same month reflect a weakening external backdrop. In politics, a confidence vote is expected to be held before mid-October after the junior coalition partner, ALDE, withdrew from the governing alliance on 26 August. The possibility of a caretaker government, snap election or a revamped coalition are all still on the table.
