In 2017, the growth rate will be reach 3.7 percent, but Romania will continue to register the highest growth rate from Europe, according to the EBRD.

„The economic growth in Romania continued to accelerate based on the internal demand. The contribution of the private consumption to the economic growth was higher than expected, based on the revenues growth as a result of the low inflation and the increase in salaries in sanitary sector starting August as well as the reduction of contributions to the social insurance in 2017.
 The private investments had a positive contribution to the growth based on the extremely low level of the financing cost and the confidence increase in industry and this might continue in 2017”, shows the chapter dedicated to Romania in the EBRD report. (source:
