Romania Foreign Direct Investment (EUR bn)

Foreign Direct Investment in Romania

According to preliminary data, annual growth slowed in Q1, undershooting market expectations. Slowing external demand should have weighed on exports. That said, stronger retail sales growth suggests that private consumption was a key growth driver. The full breakdown is due on 8 June. Turning to Q2, our panelists expect growth to pick up slightly. Sturdy wage growth so far this year, April’s decelerating inflation and stronger hiring intentions over April–May versus Q1 should be continuing to support private consumption. However, in April–May, economic sentiment moderated compared to the Q1 average due to small deteriorations in industry, services and retail. In other news, the coalition government’s planned cabinet reshuffle has been delayed after teachers went on strike in May, demanding higher salaries. So far, they have rejected two pay rises proffered by the government.
