Public Debt in Switzerland
Switzerland - Public DebtGDP growth weakened in the second quarter on a broad-based slowdown. Adverse external dynamics continued to weigh on the economy, as fixed investment deteriorated amid prolonged global uncertainties and a burdened Euro area economy. Moreover, while export growth recovered in the period, it was noticeably outpaced by that of imports. Turning to Q3, growth has likely remained lackluster and data depicts a sustained downturn in export-oriented sectors. Additionally, a languished German economy and a still-strong franc bode poorly for export prospects and, thus, manufacturing and investment spending. In politics, federal elections to vote in members of both houses of the Swiss parliament are scheduled for 20 October. While the results are unlikely to change economic policy significantly, they could impact the fate of the Swiss-EU framework deal, which the government has yet to ratify.
