Imports in Slovenia
Slovenia - Imports (percent change based on Euros)Available data suggests that the economy contracted in the first quarter, battered by the Covid-19 pandemic. Retail trade plunged at the fastest pace in over a decade in March and consumer sentiment soured, hinting at a downturn in private consumption. Moreover, dislocated supply chains and a particularly hard-hit automotive sector likely took a toll on fixed investment and exports. That said, the brunt of the crisis is likely to be felt in the second quarter as prolonged social distancing measures weigh on economic activity; business and consumer sentiment collapsed to a record low in April. Meanwhile, the government approved a second stimulus package worth EUR 2 billion (about 4.5% of GDP) on 22 April, which provides loan guarantees to businesses. Later in the month, authorities began gradually easing lockdown conditions, allowing some businesses to reopen.
