Portugal’s GDP growth moderated to 2.1% (y-o-y) in the third quarter of 2018, influenced by less dynamic
external demand. Despite some slowdown, private consumption growth remained strong, supported by sustained
job creation and moderate wage growth. Investment also performed strongly, driven by equipment purchases. At
the same time, export growth slowed substantially, albeit from a high base, reflecting weaker demand from
trading partners and production halts in some industrial sectors. The Commission’s Economic Sentiment
Indicator (ESI) rebounded towards the end of 2018 and dropped marginally at the beginning of 2019 showing a
mixed picture across sectors. The main weakness appears in the industrial sector while sentiment in services and
retail trade are still improving
