Public Debt in Czech Republic

Czech Republic - Public Debt

Recently-released GDP data showed that growth held steady in Q1 from Q4 2018’s healthy upturn. Household spending, which strengthened amid buoyant real wage growth and an extremely tight job market that saw the unemployment rate dip to a historic low, drove growth in the quarter. Fixed investment cooled markedly while net trade improved marginally, but this was mainly due to a sharp slowdown in imports. Looking at Q2, available data hints at somewhat softer activity. After an uptick in April, economic sentiment tumbled to a near-three year low in May. In particular, confidence in the industrial sector declined amid a deterioration of firms’ near-term outlook—reflective of still-elevated trade tensions and weak dynamism of German manufacturing. Meanwhile, on 31 May, the European Commission determined that Prime Minister Andrej Babis breached conflict-of-interest rules over his ties with the Agrofert conglomerate, which he placed in trust funds in 2017. If the findings are confirmed in further proceedings, his minority government could face a potential no-confidence vote.
