Slovenian Economic Mirror 6/2021: The outlook for economic growth remains favourable, with most short-term indicators pointing to a high year-on-year growth
Economic activity in the international environment strengthened in the second quarter. After contracting in the first...
After last year’s sharp decline, we forecast 4.6% GDP growth for this year and similar growth for next year. The recovery should strengthen only in the second half of the year. After last year’s deflation, inflation will gradually approach 2% again, assuming a moderate economic recovery.
Following last year’s deterioration, labour market conditions are expected to improve gradually, but in the next years the average number of unemployed will remain higher than in 2019. We expect government measures continuing to mitigate the negative impact of the coronavirus crisis on the labour market, particularly in the first half of 2021, and being lifted only gradually.
Further growth in goods trade, which started in the second half of last year, will crucially depend on the expected recovery of economic activity in our main trading partners. Trade in services, particularly travel, is set to recover more markedly only in 2022.
