The Swiss economy expanded 0.2% on quarter in the three months to September of 2022, picking up from a downwardly revised 0.1% growth in the previous quarter and below market forecasts of a 0.3% expansion. Despite soaring inflation in the period, above-average growth was seen for private consumption (0.7% vs 1.3% in Q2), particularly due to housing and energy, leisure, and non-food purchases. Although at a slower rate, growth also took place for government consumption (0.2% vs 0%). Further expansion was seen in investments in equipment (2.1% vs 1.7%), offsetting the decline in construction investment (-2% vs -1.1%). In the meantime, net foreign demand for services was positive, as the expansion for exports (11.1%) was sharper than that of imports (6.7%). The opposite is true for demand for goods, as import growth (7.7%) was higher than that for exports (3.5%). On the year, the economy expanded by 0.5%. source: State Secretariat for Economic Affairs
