After another successful year, GDP growth is expected to moderate to 3% or even less between 2019 and 2021. Investments spurred by EU funding and consumption backed by rising wages will continue to be important drivers of economic activity. The contribution of net exports is likely to turn negative in the forecast period given a weakening of external demand. In the medium term the shrinking of the working-age population and increasing labour shortages may become growth-limiting factors.
