Slovenia’s economy has continued down its growth path in 2015. The rebound has been driven by rising external demand and a mild recovery in private consumption. GDP growth in 2016 and 2017 will be moderate on account of lower EU-funded investments at the beginning of the new cycle. Exports and the gradual recovery of household consumption will remain the main engines of growth.
