The economy is growing strongly, reflecting a boom in key sources of remittances and export demand. With growth showing no signs of slowing in Western Europe, this is likely to remain the case this year. Meanwhile stronger employment growth should help to lift private consumption. Real GDP growth is likely to average around 4% per year over the forecast period, although a major new energy investment could lift this higher.
