Current Account in Turkmenistan
Turkmenistan - Current AccountA preliminary estimate put growth for 2018 at 6.2%, a tad below the previous year’s print (2017: +6.5% year-on-year), as high inflation seems to have moderated household spending. Nevertheless, sturdy industrial production and buoyant exports likely supported growth last year. Looking at Q1, the external sector appears to be benefiting from higher oil prices and renewed trade relations with Russia. In addition, on 31 January, Pakistani officials assured their commitment to begin construction works of their segment of the TAPI gas pipeline in March, which is slanted to come online in 2020 and should boost Turkmen exports.
