Danish economy logged its worst performance since 2011, on the back of a broad-based deterioration. Household spending worsened as consumers refrained from buying vehicles, in anticipation of a possible tax cut on new car purchases. Despite robust global growth, exports of goods and services contracted for a third consecutive quarter in Q3. More recent data suggests that the economy will likely rebound in Q4, although the improvement will be limited. In December, consumer confidence remained firmly entrenched in positive territory, albeit it declined compared to November.
