Bosnia and Herzegovina

The economy suffered a downturn in the aftermath of the disastrous floods in spring 2014. Still, the GDP recorded a modest increase for the year as a whole. Looking ahead, a strong rebound is anticipated, which may ultimately prove too optimistic an expectation. In the medium term, additional foreign investments and improved absorption of EU funds should contribute to an acceleration of growth. Political risks are on the decline: a trend that should nudge the EU integration process forward.
