Unemployment in Taiwan
Taiwan - UnemploymentAvailable data for Q1 2019 points to another slowdown in the economy, which remains battered by lower demand for tech products and feeble regional dynamics. Crucially, merchandise exports contracted throughout the quarter, while the manufacturing PMI remained mired in contractionary territory. In addition, export orders—which usually lead actual exports by two to three months—contracted for a fourth consecutive month in February, suggesting further weakness ahead in the external sector. Turning to Q2, the picture will likely remain downbeat, although growth may have bottomed out already: In March, the improvement in the manufacturing PMI and strong capital goods imports both suggest renewed momentum in the industrial sector. Moreover, the possibility of a U.S.-China trade deal by the end of the quarter, although not certain, could lift trade momentum in the months ahead.
