International Reserves in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia - International Reserves

The economy emerged from recession in Q1 as higher oil prices compared to last year and steady production propelled the oil sector. Moreover, strong global growth and government support boosted activity in the manufacturing sector, which compensated for poor retail and transportation dynamics due to the implementation of a value added tax (VAT) and higher petrol prices. Recent data for Q2 suggests that the economy is gaining traction. The PMI for the non-oil sector rebounded in May from April’s all-time low. Moreover, higher oil prices are providing greater fiscal space and improving Saudi Arabia’s external position. On 30 June, Saudi Arabia agreed to increase oil supply to offset falling production in Venezuela and negative spillovers from the U.S. sanctions against Iran. The Saudi oil industry has an unused capacity of around 2 mbpd and could quickly ramp up production.
