Annual GDP growth will reach close to 4% during the period 2017-2019. Exports, the recovery of investments spurred by EU funding and steady consumption growth will remain the main drivers of GDP growth. Household consumption is expected to be boosted by rising disposable income and a further improvement in the labour market. Demographic changes and labour shortages will become one of the major challenges in the future.
