Trade Balance in Greece

Greece - Trade Balance (Euros)

Available data suggests that the economy’s healthy performance in the third quarter of last year—although driven mainly by inventory accumulation—carried over into the final quarter. Industrial production rebounded strongly in November from a mild contraction in the previous month while the PMI average in Q4 came broadly in line with Q3’s, both indicating that factory activity kept up the momentum. On the demand front, unemployment remained at an over-seven year low in October which, coupled with improved consumer confidence throughout Q4 point to private consumption gaining some traction. In the political sphere, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras narrowly won a no confidence vote on 16 January, which he called for after his junior coalition partner pulled out of the government in protest over a name-change deal for Macedonia, improving his chances somewhat of serving out the rest of his term despite his party’s minority position in parliament.
