Annual GDP growth will reach about 3% during the 2017 2019 forecast period. Exports, the gradual recovery of investments supported by EU funding and continued consumption growth will remain the main drivers of GDP. Household consumption is expected to be boosted by rising wages and a further recovery of the labour market.
