Population in Italy

Italy Population | Economic News & Forecasts

Italy - Population

The economy remained in the red in Q4 2018, weighed down by sizable destocking and anemic domestic demand; and incoming indicators point to protracted weakness in Q1 2019, despite exports rebounding in January. Industrial output shrank again in January, while business confidence and the PMI continued to fall in the first two months of 2019, spelling trouble for private sector activity. As for households, worsening consumer confidence and a deterioration in the labor market point to subdued spending patterns. Moreover, although they remained well below 2015’s peak, the net stock of banks’ non-performing loans (NLPs) ticked up and remain a significant concern, while credit data was weak. In other news, the government endorsed China’s Belt and Road Initiative in late March, in the hope of receiving substantial infrastructure financing, disregarding concerns raised by the EU and the U.S.
