After two-and-a-half years and many failed attempts, Michel Aoun, a former PM and military commander, filled the vacant presidential position following endorsement from rival Saad Hariri, at the end of October. Hariri in turn has been asked to be the new PM and to form a new unity government. There is now potential for greater political consensus which could lead to improved policy-making and provide some uplift to a weak economy by boosting economic confidence.

Our base case has been revised up a little to take into account political developments both domestically and in Syria. We now anticipate that stronger investment growth in particular and higher exports will drive GDP growth to some 2.5% next year and 3% in 2018, from 1.5% this year. Further out, structural reforms could raise actual and potential growth further.
