Aggregate supply and demand – A positive 2Q21, but risks building ahead

  • Aggregate supply and demand expanded 1.2% q/q (+23.3% y/y), boosted by consumption (+1.9%) and exports (+2.9%)

  • Investment (+0.5%) and imports (+0.2%) were more modest, likely related to some uncertainty due to the pandemic

  • We keep our GDP forecast at 6.2%, with downside risks on possible weakness in domestic demand and issues in industry
