In the short run, some speed-up of growth can be expected in Macedonia as external demand continues to improve and that feeds into investment and consumption. At the same time, some deterioration of external balances could be expected, but that should not threaten the exchange rate and the macroeconomic stability. Some growth of employment is also likely, though not enough to make a noticeable dent in the rate of unemployment. A significant acceleration of growth cannot be expected even in the medium term.
