Imports in Slovakia
Slovakia - Imports (billions of Euros)The economy slowed sharply in Q2, as headwinds stemming from the Eurozone’s broad-based slowdown weighed on the country’s external and industrial sectors. Weakness in the EU also dented fixed investment, although overall domestic demand strengthened on a jump in government consumption, sizable restocking by companies and stronger consumer spending. Data for Q3 paints a mixed picture. In July, industrial production rebounded, although exports fell again in the same month, which coupled with souring business confidence in July-August, suggest private sector activity remained subdued. As for household consumption, another drop in the unemployment rate and significant wage growth in July bode well for spending dynamics. In the political arena, on 17 September, Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini survived a no-confidence vote triggered by the opposition, as revelations about the murder of a journalist in 2018 tarnished government members.
