Bulgaria - Interest Rate

A preliminary estimate put growth in the first quarter at 3.5% year-on-year, in line with the fourth quarter last year as weaker consumption dynamics were offset by a stronger outturn in the external sector. Ahead of the comprehensive release, a mixed bag of indicators suggests household spending likely flagged in the quarter; while unemployment has been ticking down, gains in both retail sales and consumer confidence have been easing up in recent months. Fixed capital outlays, on the other hand, showed resilience as business sentiment rode a near-decade high in the quarter. Meanwhile, demand from the EU sustained manufacturing activity and drove export growth, a trend likely to have persisted into the second quarter. In late May, the ECB dashed hopes of Bulgaria’s quick adoption of the euro when it reported “serious concerns” over the country joining the ERM-II, to which Bulgarian officials had intended to apply by the end of June.
