Budgetary Governance in Practice: Iceland

Growth in Iceland is expected to ease but remain robust; the economy is approaching capacity limits. Household consumption will increase on the back of continued labour immigration and rising wages in 2018 but slowdown in 2019. Business investment will decline after completion of several large projects. Unemployment has reached its lowest level since the 2008-09 economic and financial crisis and will continue to fall slightly. Revenues from exports and tourism are expected to decline from the strong levels reached in 2017.
