Retail Sales in Slovenia

Slovenia Retail Sales | Economic News & Forecasts

Slovenia - Retail Sales

Growth appears to have moderated in the first quarter, on the heels of easing economic activity in Q4 2018. Fixed investment likely lost traction in Q1, although it is expected to have remained solid nonetheless, supported by favorable financing conditions and absorption of EU structural funds. In addition, despite a tight labor market and moderate inflation, slower average retail sales and decreased consumer sentiment in Q1 point to milder private consumption. On a brighter note, businesses remained optimistic throughout the quarter, amid healthy industrial activity. Manufacturing gathered momentum, on average, in January–February, bolstered by strong activity in the auto sector, leading to a jump in export growth in both months. Seemingly, the slowdown in Germany did not hit the industrial sector in Q1, although a drop in new orders in April points to darkening skies in the months ahead.
