ΟΛΑ ΤΑ ΝΕΑ ΓΙΑ ΤΟΝ ΚΟΡΩΝΟΪΟ

The Cyprus Composite Leading Economic Index (CCLEI)

The Cyprus Composite Leading Economic Inde  (CCLEI) recorded a year-over-year decrease of 4.3% in Decembe  2020 reaching a level of 101.9, after the year-over-year reductions of 4.7% in November and 3.7% in October (based on the latest and revised data).

The decline of the Index recorded in November does not seem to continue in December amid the improved expectations created internationally by the arrival of vaccines against the pandemic. More specifically, although the Economic Sentiment Indicator (ESI) in the euro area, including Cyprus, deteriorated in November compared to October 2020, in December it recorded a year-over-year improvement, contributing positively to the year-over-year growth rate of the CCLEI. In the domestic environment, credit card transactions continue to show a significant year-over-year increase, reflecting, in part, the increasing shift to electronic payment methods. In this direction also contributed the improvement of the volume of retail sales that seems to record according to preliminary estimates in November and December 2020 compared to the previous months. On the contrary, a number of domestic variables have a negative impact on the CCLEI. In particular, despite its seasonality, tourism is still a brake on the recovery of the CCLEI, since in November and December 2020 tourist arrivals continued to be significantly reduced compared to the corresponding months of the previous year. In addition, the year-over-year improvement in electricity production appears to be slowing down, reflecting both the recent anti-pandemic restraint measures and the extremely high temperatures recorded in the previous quarter. Finally, the significant year-over-year increase in the total number of property sales contracts recorded in October is reversed, as negative year-over-year growth rates are recorded in November and December 2020.

In conclusion, the improvement in the year-over-year growth rate of the CCLEI in December 2020 reflects the reduction of uncertainty amid the arrival of new vaccines against the pandemic. Despite this fact, uncertainty remains at high levels as many countries seem to impose new restrictions also in January. Further information regarding the methodology of constructing the CCLEI Index can be found at: http://www.ucy.ac.cy/erc/el/publications/cyprus-composite-leading-economic-index-cclei

Notes:

  1. The CCLEI Index was estimated based on the econometric model of Aruoba, Diebold and Scotti (ADS) (2009).
  2. The CCLEI for December 2020 is constructed based on the availability of the Brent Crude oil price, the euro area Economic Sentiment Indicator, the total number of property sales contracts, as well as the high frequency data of the passengers’ arrivals and the volume of electricity production for December, while its other components are estimated based on the latest available information in a series of various economic indicators. It is noted that, the verification of the November flash estimated CCLEI which is recorded in the previous publication of November 2020 has been preceded.
