Trade Balance in Croatia

Croatia - Trade Balance

Recently released GDP data revealed that the economy gained steam in Q1, with growth accelerating to an over two-year high on the back of strong domestic demand. Despite higher unemployment, private consumption rose at the fastest clip since early 2008 as household incomes were buoyed by solid credit growth and healthy real wage gains in the quarter. Likewise, fixed investment growth surged to an over-decade high, aided by EU-linked structural funding and upbeat corporate lending. On the external front, although exports picked up noticeably, they were outpaced by imports and thus net trade weighed on the overall expansion. Going forward, available data signals that momentum was sustained at the outset of Q2. The unemployment rate dipped to a seven-month low in April while consumer confidence hit consecutive record highs in April and May, indicating that private consumption has remained resilient.
