Nordics’ economic outlook is bright, but near-term downside risks are rising
Topic: The Nordic recovery is on track despite some surprises in the Q2 GDP components and rising near-term downside risks. Goods exports have been weak, reflecting persistent strains in supply chains and input shortages affecting the region’s trade-sensitive economies. Growth in industry is likely to moderate and be subject to temporary setbacks, but the long-term outlook remains solid as the backlog of orders is eliminated and inventories are replenished. Surging domestic demand driven by eager-to-spend consumers alongside a superior virus containment strategy and high vaccination rates support an overall robust regional outlook.
