Strong economic growth is expected to continue, driven mainly by domestic demand. The global financial crises and slowing Eurozone economies are expected to have a limited impact. Continual improvement on the labour market should persist. However, a gradual exhausting of qualified labour could lead to excessive wage growth over a mid-term horizon and create additional inflationary pressure. Inflation should accelerate in 2009, pulled up by the one-off effect of the euro adoption and the continual price convergence of services. However, it should remain under control.
The monetary stance is expected to follow the ECB in the rest of the year (until euro adoption). Fiscal policy should improve further, but we see increasing risks regarding the upcoming elections and relaxation of the tightening stance after euro adoption. The external position is expected to improve further backed by rising foreign trade.There are 3 Banks in this Country.
