Bosnia and Herzegovina
On paper, Bosnia and Herzegovina has not done as badly as some other Balkan economies during the current crisis. GDP has declined by about 0.4% per year on average since 2009. Last year’s growth was below 1% and the recovery over the medium term should not be much faster than 2%. Employment has been stagnant, but social sustainability has deteriorated. The upcoming general elections could provide a chance to turn things around.
