Significant decrease in imports, exports down, too

Similarly to the previous quarter, in the third quarter we observed a decrease in external trade. Imports decreased by 12.1% over the same period last year. Exports decreased as well, but at a slower pace (9.2%). External trade balance amounted to EUR 1,145 million at current prices, and contributed 2.4 percentage points to GDP volume growth. 

Domestic expenditure down 

Domestic expenditure decreased by 1.4%. Final consumption expenditure increased by 0.2%, while fixed capital formation declined by 6.1%, predominantly due to a decrease in inventories. Gross fixed capital formation increased by 8.3%, mostly due to an increase in investment into buildings and structures. Household consumption expenditure went down by 0.8%.
