Money in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia - MoneyA second estimate confirmed that the economy expanded at the quickest pace in nearly a decade in Q3, after growing for the first time since Q3 2019 in the second quarter. The oil economy grew robustly following nine consecutive contractions, driving Q3’s upturn. Meanwhile, growth in the non-oil private sector moderated, while government sector output growth gained momentum in the quarter. Turning to Q4, economic activity likely lost some steam, but GDP growth should have remained healthy due to stronger oil production in October–November, in line with the ongoing easing of OPEC+ cuts. On the fiscal front, in mid-December authorities released details for the 2022 budget, which sees expenditure falling slightly, and revenues rising notably. Consequently, the fiscal balance is seen recording a surplus in 2022 following 2021’s expected deficit.
