Portugal - Population

The latest national accounts data revealed that the economy picked up marginally over the previous quarter in Q2, owing to an acceleration in total investment driven by a surge in inventories. Available data for the outset of Q3, however, suggests a slight slowdown in growth: Industrial production contracted at a sharper annual rate in July than in the previous month, and annual growth in retail sales also dropped as inflation picked up and ate into consumers’ purchasing power. The trend in the retail sector appears set to continue as consumer confidence remained in negative territory in August. On the other hand, the economic climate indicator stabilized at a positive level in August, while business confidence was more upbeat, signaling the prospect of more investment. Meanwhile, Portugal’s successful sale of EUR 1 billion worth of 5- and 11-year bonds helped lift sentiment towards peripheral markets. On another positive note, citing strong growth prospects and the government’s commitment to further easing the debt burden, S&P Global Ratings bumped up Portugal’s credit rating outlook from stable to positive on 14 September.
