Portugal GDP Growth Confirmed at 1.6% in Q4
Portugal’s GDP expended 1.6 percent quarter-on-quarter in the last three months of 2021, in line with preliminary estimates and slowing from a downwardly revised 2.8 percent expansion in the previous quarter. Net external demand was positive but its contribution to GDP growth decreased, as imports (7.0 percent vs 4.6 percent in Q3) almost offset exports (8.9 percent vs 8.8 percent). Meanwhile, growth of domestic demand lost some momentum (0.9 percent vs 1.3 percent), reflecting a softer increase in household spending (1.0 percent vs 1.7 percent), amid stronger headwinds from spending in nondurable goods. Finally, gross fixed investment rebounded strongly (3.5 percent vs -1.8 percent). On an annual basis, GDP advanced 5.8 percent, quickening from a downwardly revised 4.4 percent expansion in the third quarter. Considering 2021 as a whole, the economy of Portugal expanded 4.9 percent, rebounding from an unprecedented, downwardly revised 8.4 percent contraction in 2020.

Portugal GDP Growth Wanes in Q4
Portugal’s GDP rose 1.6 percent quarter-on-quarter in the last three months of 2021, slowing from a 2.9 percent expansion in the previous quarter, a preliminary estimate showed. With one of the highest vaccination rates in Europe, economic activities in Portugal resumed almost unrestricted, such that domestic demand contributed more significantly to growth than in the previous period. Net external demand was positive but the stronger weight of the import deflator dampened its contribution to GDP growth, namely due to increasing energy and raw materials prices. Year-on-year, the economy advanced 5.8 percent, following an upwardly revised 4.5 percent expansion in the third quarter. Considering 2021 as a whole, the Portuguese GDP rose at a three-decade high of 4.9 percent, rebounding from an unprecedented 8.9 percent slump in 2020.
