Quarterly GDP growth in Q3 was confirmed at 0.7%, slightly below the 0.8% expansion in Q2. The detailed breakdown corroborates our prediction that that domestic demand continued to be the main driving force. Net exports, on the other hand only contributed marginally to growth.

Short-term growth continues to be supported by familiar tailwinds, including ultra-loose ECB monetary policy and low oil prices. We therefore are maintaining our above-consensus 3.3% forecast for this year. Furthermore, preliminary indicators suggest that economic growth will remain strong in Q4. As a result of the carry-over effect into 2017, we have lifted our GDP forecast for next year slightly to 2.4% (from 2.3% last month).

There has been some positive news on the fiscal front this month. Faced with the realisation that the country was going to miss its budget targets next year, the government recently announced higher taxes for corporates and on alcohol and tobacco. The measures, which aim at raising an additional EUR5bn in revenues, should allow Spain to meet its fiscal goals in 2017.
