Retail Sales in Austria
Austria - Retail SalesThe economic impact of the war in Ukraine will increasingly be felt during Q2; Austrian banks have close ties with Russia, which is also an important market for the country’s industrial exports. The rate of growth in industrial production already began to slow in March and is likely to weaken further during Q2, as the war has both exacerbated supply chain constraints and undermined demand. Although April’s manufacturing PMI showed both a robust improvement in operating conditions and positive business confidence, this is unlikely to last. Moreover, rising commodity prices and uncertainty arising from the war are weighing heavily on consumer sentiment, which will be negatively affecting household spending. Meanwhile, in a May report, the European Commission highlighted the public finances, the labor market and an over-reliance on fossil fuels as key areas for the government to address.
