Romania has seen relatively fast economic growth recently fuelled by net exports and a bumper harvest. But investment activity has been weak and also private consumption stagnated. Stability-oriented economic policies under a new IMF precautionary agreement may not boost growth in the coming years. Exporting sectors both in industry and services may continue to grow while SMEs continue to suffer from sluggish demand, financial deleveraging and poor payment behaviour. Some boost to the economy can be expected of further export expansion and a recovery of private consumption in the wake of the inflation slowdown.
