Interest Rate in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia - Interest RateThe contraction likely eased slightly in Q3 after Q2’s record GDP contraction due to flagging oil production and domestic lockdown measures. The year-on-year fall in oil production eased in Q3 as output rose in September for the first time since April. In addition, the non-oil private sector PMI averaged higher in Q3 and pointed to a stabilization in output, supported by easing lockdown restrictions, despite July’s VAT hike. Turning to Q4, however, a global surge in Covid-19 cases weighed on oil prices in October. Meanwhile, the government unveiled projections for next year’s budget in late September. The preliminary estimates show an approximate 7.3% spending cut and a 9.8% increase in revenues. The country plans to shift spending towards the sectors hit hardest by the pandemic to support the recovery, while prioritizing fiscal discipline.
