Economic growth is expected to continue at last year’s pace of about 4% based on a strong momentum of investments and structural change. Fiscal and current account imbalances, which pose high risks, are manageable at a slower rate of economic growth of around 3.5% in the coming years. The government formed in early June can solidify its power with international support and start institutional reforms. But snap elections and street riots imposing risks to foreign investors cannot be ruled out.
