The Portuguese economy expanded 2.9 percent quarter-on-quarter in the three-months to September of 2021, in line with preliminary estimates and slower than a downwardly revised 4.4 percent advance in the previous quarter. Net external demand contributed positively amid an improving pandemic situation in the EU, boosting export growth (9.6 percent vs -2.2 percent), which more than offset the rise in imports (4.4 percent vs -0.4 percent). Meanwhile, domestic demand benefited from the sustained lifting of restrictions but growth eased significantly (1.0 percent vs 4.9 percent), reflecting a trend of moderation in household spending (1.9 percent vs 7.5 percent), as consumption of durable goods contracted (-6.2 percent vs 14.5 percent) and that of non-durables lost momentum (2.8 percent vs 6.8 percent). Finally, gross fixed investment contracted 1.8 percent, after falling 0.5 percent in Q2. On an annual basis, GDP rose 4.2 percent, slowing from a downwardly revised 16.1 percent jump in Q2. source: Statistics Portugal
