Bosnia and Herzegovina

On the basis of better investment and continued export growth, the recovery of close to 2% growth in GDP terms estimated for 2015 could accelerate and come close to 3% in the forecasting period and beyond. The country faces both downside and upside risks depending on the evolution of its political and institutional structures, including relations with the EU.
