Investment activity in both the private and the public sector picked up more
strongly than expected, pushing GDP growth upwards in both 2017 and 2018.
Meanwhile exports have also gained momentum and recovered, particularly
towards Russia. Household consumption, backed by a still considerable rise in
real wages, continues to be a strong driver of economic activity. A speed-up in
economic activity in the short run is projected to result in a GDP growth rate of
3.8% in 2017 and 3.3% in 2018, declining somewhat to 2.9% in 2019.
