The Bulgarian economy advanced by 3.3% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2022, compared to initial estimates of 3.2%, following a 4.6% expansion in the previous three-month period. This marks the slowest growth since the first quarter of 2021 when the economy contracted, partly due to the spillover effects of the war in Ukraine. Both household consumption (3.3% vs 3.9% in Q2) and government spending (7.7% vs 10.3%) slowed, while fixed investment continued to decrease (-6.1% vs -9.5%). Meanwhile, net external demand contributed positively to growth, as exports (11.1% vs 8.5% in Q2) rose faster than imports (9.3% vs 12.4% in Q2). On a quarterly basis, Bulgaria’s GDP rose 0.6%, in line with the preliminary estimate, slowing from an upwardly revised 0.8% growth in the second quarter. source: National Statistical Institute, Bulgaria
