After posting comfortably its strongest real GDP increase for a decade in 2018, the Serbian economy has adjusted back to a more muted growth path, and should expand by just under 3% this year. Growth of 2.5-3% is likely during the rest of the forecast period, with the government set to remain focussed on FDI-driven investment. Political tensions in the region are rising, but would have to get much worse to constitute a significant downside risk to the economy.
