Economic Sentiment Improved In July, Driven By Confidence Boost In Services

Economic Sentiment Improved In July, Driven By Confidence Boost In Services

The University of Cyprus’ Economic Research Centre released its monthly bulletin, revealing that the economic sentiment in Cyprus improved as the Economic Sentiment Indicator (ESI-CypERC) increased by 4.5 points compared with June 2020, driven by confidence improvements in services and among consumers.

 

The bulletin further stated that the increase in the Services Confidence Indicator resulted from firms’ less adverse assessments of their recent turnover and upward revisions in demand expectations.

 

The marginal decrease observed in the Retail Trade Confidence Indicator was due to worsening views on past sales and current stock levels, despite the upward revisions in sales expectations.

 

On the construction side, the Confidence Indicator decreased as firms’ assessments of the level of order books deteriorated further and future employment plans were more pessimistic.

 

The Industry Confidence Indicator remained the same as the improved views on the current level of order books and upward revisions in production expectations were offset by more adverse assessments of the current level of stocks of finished products.

 

The improvement in Consumer Confidence Indicator was mainly driven by upward revisions in consumers’ expectations about their future financial conditions and the future economic conditions in Cyprus.

 

In July, uncertainty in services, construction and industry declined, while the largest decrease was recorded in services. Uncertainty among firms in the retail trade sector and among consumers increased. Uncertainty in all sectors and among consumers remains elevated compared to a similar period in 2019.
