Population in Latvia
Latvia - PopulationLatvia’s economy appears to have lost steam in Q1, on the heels of a robust, domestic demand-led outturn in Q4 2018. Industrial production contracted in the first two months of 2019 amid tumbling energy-sector output. Furthermore, exports were anemic in the same period, likely reflecting the broader trend of weakening trade across the European Union. Nevertheless, domestic demand seemed robust and almost certainly buffered the external-sector pullback; retail sales accelerated in January-February, signaling upbeat household spending. On the other hand, survey-based data in the quarter revealed a slight deterioration of the business climate—largely due to weaker sentiment in the industrial and construction sectors. Meanwhile, citing institutional strength and healthy public finances, Fitch Ratings affirmed Latvia’s A- credit rating on 15 April.
