Fiscal Balance in Slovenia
Slovenia - Fiscal BalanceThe economy expanded at the slowest pace in over two years in the first quarter, dragged by weaker domestic demand. Notably, inventories contracted sharply amid falling business confidence on growing anxieties of a wider pullback across the Eurozone. In contrast, household spending accelerated, supported by a marked slowdown in inflation, as did fixed investment thanks to upbeat construction activity. Moreover, export growth gained steam in Q1, despite sluggishness in Europe’s largest economies. Turning to Q2, domestic demand seems to have gathered momentum, bolstered by consumers’ increased purchasing power: In April, retail sales grew at the fastest pace of the year so far and merchandise imports growth soared to an over-decade high. Meanwhile, on 17 June, S&P ratings raised the country’s credit rating from A+ to AA- with a stable outlook, lauding resilient GDP growth alongside fiscal and external surpluses.
