Pan-Baltic Outlook 2021
Over 120 participants joined Pan-Swedish Macro Outlook webinar oganized by the Swedish Chambers of Commerce in Baltics! SEB economists Tadas Povilauskas, Dainis Gašputis, and Mihkel Nestor said that Baltic economies overall have declined not as drastically, and prospects of positive economic growth are in sight. „The joint efforts of central banks and governments to overcome the Covid-19 crisis have been immense...Being a part of the Eurozone is also one of the key reasons why Baltics managed to escape this crisis relatively easily” noted Chief economist M. Nestor.
Economist T. Povilauskas stated seeing rather positive trends when asked about Lithuanian’s economic forecasts. However, he is not certain whether the introduction of stricter quarantine restrictions won't slow the recovery down, thus reduces his GDP prospects to 2% in 2021. Povilauskas also pointed out that issues in Belarus might have a negative impact on transportation sector, however he sees it as “a good opportunity to attract Belarus companies and employees to Lithuania.”
D. Gašputis noted that in the second half of this year „Rail Baltica“ will allow the construction sector to bloom again. SEB experts said the transport sector should begin to improve as the vaccine rollout continues and more people are able to resume more normal social behaviour.
According to event moderator Morten Hansen, last week’s presentation indicates that this crisis however is fundamentally different from the financial crisis!
