After a strong increase in 2018, economic activity slowed in the course of 2019 due to weakening foreign demand. However, thanks to a continued rise in consumption and investments, GDP growth will end up at a fairly robust 2.9% for the year as a whole, with unemployment reaching record lows. In the coming years we expect GDP growth to remain subdued, driven mostly by domestic demand. Banking privatisation has been finally completed after a long lasting process.
