Public Debt in Belgium

Belgium - Public Debt

Available fourth-quarter data points to a sluggish end to last year, although buoyant retail sales through November suggest that domestic demand largely held up. Despite a tight labor market, however, household spending looks to have clocked only modest growth through year-end as income gains were increasingly offset by higher inflation. Meanwhile, late-year exports suffered amid industrial-output losses in France and Germany—contrasting the third quarter’s moderate, export-led national accounts. In the political arena, Prime Minister Charles Michel’s resignation on 18 December followed a parliamentary standoff over his opposition to a UN-led migration pact. With the caretaker government seemingly reticent to rock the boat, economic policy is unlikely to shift in the run-up to federal elections in May.
