After a strong 2018, GDP growth is expected to moderate this year to 3.3% and remain close to this level up to 2021. Domestic consumption will be the key driver of growth, backed by real wage increases, employment gains and bank loans. Unemployment will keep declining amid rising labour shortages, which will continue to put upward pressure on wages. The general government budget will likely end up close to balance over the forecast horizon.
