Public Debt in Taiwan

Taiwan Public Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Taiwan - Public Debt

The economy slowed again in the first quarter of 2019 after a meek showing in the previous quarter, as weak export demand continued to restrain momentum. Export growth ticked down, likely due to contracting goods exports; imports, however, also slowed markedly, which supported the headline growth print. Meanwhile, domestic demand also weakened somewhat: Private consumption growth edged down despite a rebound in the stock market, while government consumption contracted and total investment also slowed. Turning to Q2, the picture remains bleak, with March export orders and April trade data indicating that exports likely contracted throughout the quarter. Moreover, Taiwan is extremely vulnerable to the possible imposition of new tariffs on Chinese imports from the U.S.—including tech products—which will likely weigh on business sentiment and investment in the quarter.
