GDP growth is set to remain high (3.6% p.a.) in the forecasting period, albeit moderating from the peak of 2017. Domestic demand and exports are expected to be the main growth drivers. The general government deficit and public debt ratios will continue declining. Upcoming elections will result again in a broad coalition.
