Bulgaria’s broad-based economic upturn has continued, with positive output
growth across all sectors of economic activity. The pattern of growth has
switched from the export-led model of 2016 to a demand-driven type. However,
labour shortages are causing supply constraints. The short-term prospects
have improved and GDP growth for 2017 as a whole could come close to 4% and
will remain in this range in the foreseeable future. Growth is balanced, with no
imminent threats to macroeconomic stability.
