GDP growth is expected to reach 4.5% in 2018, but will slow due to lower export growth in the forecast period. Domestic demand, investments fuelled by EU funding and steady consumption growth will remain the main drivers of GDP growth. The shrinking of the working-age population and increasing labour shortages will put an upward pressure on wages.
