Growth is projected to remain strong over the next two years, driven mainly by domestic demand. Low unemployment and rising wages will support household consumption. Investment growth will remain solid, underpinned by favorable financial conditions and by the disbursement of EU structural funds. External demand is weakening, but the launch of a new production line in the automotive sector will support gains in export market shares. Consumer price inflation will remain above 2% as the labour market tightens further.
