Throughout 2017, economic growth in Lithuania will be driven by resurgence in external demand, particularly from the CIS and for oil products. Moreover, an upswing in public investment will be underpinned by fresh funds from the EU this year. The ongoing stable growth in terms of employment and rapid wage rises will result in robust increases in consumer demand. For 2017, we forecast a moderate upswing in the GDP growth rate to 2.7%, followed by 2.8% in 2018 and 3.1% in 2019.
