January 8, 2019

Recent data suggests that growth strengthened in November, after a lackluster start to the fourth quarter. Economic activity picked up pace bolstered by accelerating growth in the non-oil sector. Despite improving somewhat over the past year, the energy sector remained battered with oil prices falling sharply at the end of 2018.
