Economic activity is forecast to accelerate sharply in 2017, driven by strong private investment growth and in particular a strong recovery in the housing market. As a result, unemployment rate is set to fall substantially. While the economy is expected to maintain its current momentum in the near future, a slight easing is expected in the medium term, as spare capacities in the economy are reabsorbed.
