Bosnia and Herzegovina

The first quarter of this year was not all that promising. Industrial production declined and exports increased only by slightly more than 2%. Imports declined, which is also an indication of weak demand, and most other indicators were not pointing towards recovery. In the short run, some unimpressive recovery is possible that could see some acceleration in the medium run.
