Hide / Show Abstract

Economic growth is projected to pick up in 2017. Stronger growth in the euro area and Russia will support exports, which, along with the disbursement of EU funds, will boost investment. Household consumption will be robust, supported by strong wage growth. However, unemployment will remain high, reflecting regional and skill mismatches between workers and jobs. Higher energy prices will raise inflation somewhat and reduce the current account surplus.
