Croatia’s economy has returned to a mild growth path in 2015. The turnaround was backed by a rise in external demand and a modest recovery in household consumption and investments. EU-funded investments and the continuation of private consumption recovery should help to stimulate GDP growth, which, however, will remain relatively weak, 1.7% on average, over the period 2016-2018. Fiscal consolidation coupled with high public debt will remain the main impediments to sustainable growth.
