For 2022, we project real GDP to grow by 4.1% – unchanged from our previous forecast. Growth will be affected positively by strong private spending and investment, and negatively by the war in Ukraine, which will impact the economy through higher inflation and lower demand for exports. Inflation will reach 4.8%, and will spill over from energy into food and services. Due to the geopolitical situation, public finance is becoming a matter of some concern, following a period of high spending. The parliamentary elections in April will likely result in a new coalition.
