Economic sentiment unchanged in June 2015

The Economic Sentiment Indicator (ESI) remained unchanged at 104.2 points in June 2015, due to a marginal drop in consumer confidence and an equal improvement in business confidence in retail, construction and manufacturing.

The Economics Research Centre of the University of Cyprus said that climate change in retail was affected by a lesser-negative sentiment in sales in the second quarter and projections for future sales.

The construction sector benefited from a ‘lesser pessimistic’ view of jobs in the next quarter, while the improvement in manufacturing resulted from a ‘lesser negative’ climate due to current orders and increase in productivity.

The services sector remained basically unchanged from May. The marginal drop in consumer confidence arose from a negative view of consumption levels and household incomes in general and over the next 12-month period.
