Romania’s energy and trade dependence on Russia and Ukraine is relatively modest, but still the energy price shocks and supply-chain disruptions have set back its economic performance. GDP will grow by no more than 2% in 2022, despite the generous inflows of EU funds. Inflation will rise to 9% on average, which will depress household demand. Currency devaluation will be modest, due to the central bank’s interventions on the currency market.
