Over the next three years, economic growth is forecast to remain above 3%. In 2016, the expansion of household consumption was the main driver of growth, and that will remain the case, at least until the election year 2018. A deterioration will begin in the external balances; there is expected to be a recovery in investment, largely financed by EU funds.
