Bosnia and Herzegovina

The economy is benefiting from highly supportive external conditions, which are driving strong growth of remittances and exports. These trends should continue this year, and feed through to higher domestic employment and private consumption growth. The political situation remains problematic, and is unlikely to change before the upcoming election. During the forecast period, the economy should grow in the 3-3.5% per year range.
