Trade Balance in Romania
Romania - Trade BalanceFlash estimates for annual GDP growth in Q1 indicate that the economy beat market expectations, growing more than twice as fast as in Q4. A breakdown of the reading is not yet available. This said, fairly upbeat retail sales and economic sentiment in the quarter suggest household spending may have held up better than expected; the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in March likely boosted activity. Meanwhile, industrial production contracted in annual terms in Q1, plagued by supply-chain disruptions which were compounded by the war in Ukraine. Turning to Q2, the government support to households and SMEs, and resilient economic sentiment, are likely playing a losing game against conflagratory inflation and tighter monetary policy. On 24 May, the European Commission presented a report calling for Romania’s admission into the Schengen zone—which would boost long-term growth prospects.
