Uruguay - External Debt

The economy is expected to have decelerated further in the first quarter, after annual growth fell to a near three-year low in Q4 2018 on slumping consumption and investment activity. Amid rising unemployment, elevated inflation and a gradually depreciating peso, private consumption appears to have remained sluggish in Q1. On the external front, metrics were also gloomy: Merchandise exports contracted in Q1 amid a still-frail regional environment and sustained fears over a global trade spat. Turning to the second quarter, incoming data has been mixed thus far: While exports of goods rebounded firmly in April, signaling a stronger external sector, an uptick in inflation and further depreciation of the peso suggest domestic demand was constrained at the beginning of Q2.
