Confidence in the economy improves – TNE increases by 1.6 points
The Economic Sensitivity Index (ECI) for June increased by 1.6 points compared to May, according to the latest data from the Bank of Albania. The institution underlines that, TNE continued the improving trend for the seventh consecutive month. The current level of the indicator reached 105.7, standing 5.7 points above the long-term average. “The positive dynamics of TNE in June was mainly determined by the increase in confidence in the services and trade sectors. Also, consumer confidence improved but to a lesser extent.
On the other hand, confidence in the industrial sector declined, while confidence in the construction sector remained at a level close to last month’s values, ”explains the Bank of Albania.
