The Bank of Israel has revised up its forecast for GDP growth to 2.8% in 2016 and 3.1% in 2017, in line with our view. Third estimates for Q2 saw growth upgraded to 3.2%, underpinned by surging growth in household consumption in turn helped by a strong labour market, including a fall in unemployment to a record low of 4.6%. Despite solid growth, however, the central bank left interest rates on hold at 0.1% in September, in part to avoid further appreciation of the shekel that could skew the economy and against a backdrop of inflation that remains very weak at -0.4% y/y in September, well below the 1-3% target.

Overheating in the domestic economy is a risk, especially given continued robust growth in house prices. However, we have upgraded our medium-term growth forecast this month as the start-up of production at the Leviathan gas field becomes increasingly likely, with output now set to begin in late 2019 from 2020 before. GDP growth is seen averaging 3.8% per year in 2017-19.
