Malta has revised up its GDP growth in 2014 and 2015 to a very strong 8.3% and 7.4% respectively, reflecting new data for gambling and betting activities using updated financial statements for these years.

Despite the large revisions, the overall outlook remains broadly unchanged. Malta's economy will continue to decelerate from the boom years of 2014-15 but it will continue to enjoy solid growth, well ahead that of the Eurozone. Household consumption growth is expected to ease from last year, but it will continue to expand at a solid pace, underpinned by a strong labour market. Meanwhile, the key tourism industry also maintains solid momentum, further supporting economic activity. Further ahead, we expect growth of 2.5% a year in 2018-19.

The fiscal position remains healthy and Malta is expected to bring its public deficit below the 60% of GDP threshold this year. Recognising this, S&P upgraded its credit rating in October from BBB+ to A-.
