This year Slovenia’s economy has entered a period of moderately faster GDP growth than in 2014 which might continue in 2016-2017. Growth will mainly hinge on external demand and the gradual recovery of private consumption following an improvement in the labour market. Due to ongoing business sector deleveraging, it will take some time before investments reach sustained growth. Government consumption will remain supressed owing to fiscal consolidation.
