For 2019 GDP is expected to grow by 2.9% and to moderate slightly over the forecast horizon. Growth will be supported primarily by domestic demand fuelled by rising wages and employment. Revenues from tourism are expected to remain robust, but probably below the levels reached in the past couple of years, due to the return of competition especially from Turkey. The current account should remain in positive territory, but declining gradually.
