The economy remained robust during the strong second wave of the pandemic, which got under way in October. Exports, manufacturing and construction covered the losses in services and retail incurred by a prolonged lockdown. Government support measures continue to shield domestic firms and the labour market from shocks. In 2021 the ongoing pandemic will dampen the recovery and restrict the projected growth rate to 3.6%, underpinned by a strong current-account surplus and European recovery funds.
