Slovakia - Current Account

Economic growth decelerated sharply in the second quarter, likely dragged on by the external sector and weaker domestic demand. Industrial activity, led by the all-important automotive sector, deteriorated in the quarter, shrinking for the first time in 15 months in June, while exports fell for the first time in four-and-a-half years in Q2 as Germany, the country’s biggest export market, grapples with a marked downturn. Meanwhile, retail sales swung to decline in the quarter, pointing to a further loss of momentum in private consumption despite households turning less pessimistic. Moreover, business confidence was more downbeat on average, hinting at a continued fall in fixed investment growth. Meanwhile, prospects remained relatively grim at the outset of Q3: Business sentiment dived sharply into negative territory in July, while consumer confidence also lost ground in the month.
