Following the favourable developments during the first months of the year, we have revised our GDP growth forecast from the earlier 2.9% to 3.5% in 2017. GDP growth is expected to remain robust, above 3% annually until the end of the forecasting period in 2019. Expansion of household consumption will remain strong, supported by rising employment and wages. Investments are expected to further expand fuelled by EU transfers under the new financial programming period.
