Economic growth in 2019 and in 2020 will be lower than in the previous three years. Growth in domestic consumption will remain relatively strong, but the contribution of exports will be lower. Inflation will rise moderately.
Employment will continue to rise, albeit more and more slowly due to the contraction in the number of working-age people, lower and lower unemployment and more moderate growth in economic activity. Wage growth will strengthen.
