GDP growth slowed to an estimated 1.2% in 2016 as the government's commitment to a budget surplus left recovery largely reliant on private consumption and a return to export growth. Looking ahead, more buoyant investment recovery boosted by the return to full-strength EU structural funding and strong consumer spending due to renewed real wage growth are still on track to lift GDP growth to 3% in 2017 and 4% in 2018-19.

The Reform Party unexpectedly lost power in November, less than two years after re-election, when coalition partners ejected it and brought the Centre Party back into government. Despite its past opposition to post-2008 austerity and other measures that hurt its low-income support base, Centre's new leadership is expected to stay close to present EU- and NATO-driven policy, constrained by partners and a strong centre-right opposition. While the re-aligned coalition is expected to abandon plans for small budget surpluses in 2017-18, the reversion to balance or small deficits will promote the acceleration of growth, without seriously raising inflation pressure.
