Country Economic Forecasts > Bosnia And Herzegovina

GDP growth reached 3.2% in 2015, and we forecast rates of about 3% through to 2019 as the current export-led recovery encourages an investment upturn and higher infrastructure spending. Persistent budget and current account deficits leave recovery dependent on large IMF/World Bank funds and EU aid, but these appear intact after agreement on IMF conditions paved the way for approval of a new three-year EUR550m extended fund facility by year-end.

Steady medium-term recovery is underpinned by multilateral commitments to political stability and commercial reconstruction, with EU- and IMF-imposed conditions forcing policymakers to improve the business environment. This is expected to lead to a gradual pick-up in FDI, focused on privatisation, provided the new IMF deal is finalised and stays on track (alongside EU accession talks) in 2017-18. But risks to the forecast remain on the downside due to political tensions preventing the reduction of bureaucracy and corruption and delaying reforms. Bargaining over IMF terms showed the three entities still resisting centralisation, and the long-delayed 2013 census results - showing Bosniaks now in a majority - have reopened disputes over internal power sharing.
