GDP growth is set to remain high, at close to 5% in 2018, but will somewhat moderate in the 2019-2020 period. Domestic demand and exports are expected to be the main growth drivers. The general government deficit and public debt ratios will continue declining. A decision on the outcome of a new government coalition following the parliamentary elections held in June is pending.
