In the second quarter of 2020, GDP fell by 7.9%, but the third quarter has brought some respite to industry. Monetary and fiscal policies have been very expansionary so far, limiting the scale of GDP decline. Inadequate demand remains the chief problem, followed by the falling profitability of firms and continuing uncertainty, also over the pandemic. Consumption may not recover and investment will decline further. Moderate improvements in 2021 and beyond are possible, but not guaranteed.
