Spain Q2 GDP Growth Revised Sharply Down to 1.1%
Spain's gross domestic product expanded 1.1% on quarter in the three months to June of 2021, compared to an earlier estimate of a 2.8% growth and following an upwardly revised 0.6% contraction in the prior period. The downward revision was prompted by weaker-than-expected final data on sales, from both large and small companies in the service and manufacturing industries, as well as private consumption. On the expenditure side, both household consumption (4.7% vs -2.2% in Q1) and government spending (0.9% vs 0.4%) increased. Meanwhile, fixed investment shrank (-2.2% vs 0.1%) and net foreign demand contributed negatively to growth, as imports jumped 4.2 percent (vs 0.4 percent in Q1) whereas exports rose only 0.9 percent (vs 0.3 percent in Q1). Year-on-year, the Spanish GDP advanced 17.5%, below an earlier estimate of 19.8% and after a 4.2% fall in the previous period.
