The Croatian economic recovery strengthened in 2016, boosted by improving private spending and the tourism sector, with growth estimated at 2.6% in the year as a whole, after a 1.6% expansion in 2015.

The new government's tax reform was adopted by parliament this month. It will result in a reduction of the corporate tax rate (from 20% to 18%), as well as the income tax rates: from 25% to 24% and 40% to 36%. The government decided to counter the loss in revenues from lower income tax rates by imposing a higher VAT in the tourism sector. We expect the budget deficit to be close to 2% of GDP in both 2016 and 2017.

In addition, stronger-than-expected fiscal consolidation and faster economic growth led to the first 'outlook' upgrade by a rating agency in 9 years in December: with S&P upgrading from negative to stable. However, the risks to our 2017 forecast (of 2.4% GDP growth) are still tilted to the downside as there are still a number of politically divisive issues to be tackled, while the main source of economic uncertainty is Eurozone growth.
