Current Account in Malta
Malta - Current AccountThe economy continued to expand at a solid rate in the first quarter, after decelerating in the final stretch of 2017. GDP expanded 4.4% annually in Q1, broadly matching Q4’s 4.6% increase. Growth was underpinned by a pick-up in private consumption and a sizeable rebound in government spending. Moreover, the external sector’s performance improved, as imports fell at a more pronounced pace than exports, reflecting reduced imports of capital goods. Heading into Q2, tourist inflows soared in April, while unemployment dropped further. However, in the January–April period, the budget balance recorded a deficit on surging current spending.
