New Report Available Taiwan Freight Transport Report Q2 2015

( MENAFN Editorial )

We maintain our real GDP growth forecast of 3.5% for 2015 the same rate of growth seen in 2014 amid a fairly positive domestic outlook. However we note that a challenging external environment will continue to present headwinds to Taiwanese exports which by extension will have rep e rcussions for Taiwan's freight industry .

Taiwan's economy grew 3.2% year-on-year (y-o-y) in Q414 slowing marginally from a 3.6% expansion registered in the previous quarter. Despite the weakening global outlook we note that the domestic outlook is relatively positive with credit growth on an uptrend and investment in infrastructure remaining positive and will provide some degree of support. We are therefore happy to maintain our forecast of 3.5% real GDP growth for 2015 projecting the economy to grow at the same rate as it did in 2014.

While growth in Q414 was the result of a continued expansion across all expenditure categories that the rate of growth was slower than the stellar figures recorded in the previous quarter. Exports were the outperformer growing by 5.6% y-o-y in Q414 though this is significantly lower than the 7.5% registered in Q314.
