The Danish economy contracted by 0.5 percent on quarter in the three months to March of 2022, worse than the preliminary reading of a 0.1% contraction, and reversing from a downwardly revised 2.8% expansion in the previous period. It was the first contraction in the GDP since the first quarter of 2021, due to imposing COVID-19 restrictions. The contraction in the economy was dragged down by a decline in both household consumption (-2.1% vs -0.5% in Q4) and government spending (-1.8% vs 3.4%), while net external demand contributed negatively to the GDP, as exports fell 3.0 percent (vs 4.1% in Q4) while imports dropped at a softer 2.6% (vs 2.9% in Q4). In the meantime, fixed investment grew faster (4.0% vs 2.4% in Q4).
