The growth outlook for Kosovo remains stable. GDP growth in 2015, 2016 and 2017 is expected to hover around 4%, mainly on account of strong household consumption fuelled by pre election public wage increases and a rise in remittances, as well as improved dynamics in gross fixed capital formation over the medium term. The GDP growth figures for 2014 are ambiguous, with the Agency of Statistics and the Central Bank publishing diverging figures. That ambiguity hints at the need for improved statistics.
