Swiss GDP Grows More than Expected in Q1
Switzerland’s gross domestic product grew 0.5 percent on the quarter in the three months to March of 2022, following a downwardly revised 0.2 percent expansion in the previous period and surpassing market expectations of a 0.3 percent growth rate. The increase in GDP was largely due to increased private consumption (0.4 percent vs 0.3 percent in Q4) and government consumption (1.4 percent vs 1.3 percent). On the other hand, contraction was seen for construction investment (-0.7 percent vs -0.4 percent), and equipment and software investment (-3.1 percent vs 4.6 percent), while net external demand contributed negatively to the GDP, with imports of goods rising by 6.1 percent while exports gained a softer 2.1 percent. Year-on-year, the Swiss economy grew by 4.4 percent, picking up from an upwardly revised 3.6 percent in the prior quarter and above expectations of 4.3 percent.
