Fiscal Balance in Taiwan

Taiwan Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Taiwan - Fiscal Balance

Annual economic growth accelerated for the second consecutive time in the third quarter, as government spending ramped up and private consumption growth accelerated slightly, supported by stronger loan growth. On the external front, exports of goods and services increased at a robust pace, defying the wider global trade slowdown. Turning to the fourth quarter, however, the economy seems set for a slowdown. Tourist arrivals from mainland China were down almost 50% in September compared to the same month a year earlier, which contrasted a small increase in August and was due to the Chinese government’s decision to curb tourist visits to Taiwan amid poor cross-strait relations. Moreover, the manufacturing PMI fell in October, pointing to weaker business activity, after the PMI momentarily rebounded for the first time in 11 months in September.

    The manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), reported by IHS Markit, dipped to 49.8 in October from 50.0 in September, once again coming below the 50.0-threshold that separates contraction from expansion after briefly climbing above it in September for the first time in a year.
