Spain: wage increase agreements vs inflation

According to data published by Spain’s Ministry of Labour, 94% of workers agreed wage increases below inflation in 2021. On the one hand, this means that a large share of workers will have lost purchasing power in 2021, which will slow down the recovery of household consumption (which was still 7% below its pre-crisis level at the end of September 2021). On the other hand, it also puts a brake on the second-round effects of inflation, which is expected to moderate gradually over the course of 2022.

China will continue to expand its role as a main destination for Latin American exports at the expense of the U.S.

Coface observes that LatAm countries’ foreign sales growth rates are expected to exceed their domestic demand expansion. Indeed the region’s activity rebound should be lower than the global average recovery, and more specifically lower than the Chinese and U.S. recoveries. Therefore, sales to China and the U.S. should post a bright performance in 2021. In terms of significance for Latin American exports, China should continue to gain ground over the U.S.
