GKI raises GDP projection
Economic research institute GKI raised its projection for GDP growth this year to 3%, chairman András Vértes said today.
The forecast was raised from 2.5% in June, the last time GKI published its projection.
In 2015, GKI projects economic growth slowing to 2%, in part due to the effect of a HUF 1 trillion burden on banks related to borrowers' relief legislation, Vértes said.
GKI projects the general government deficit will remain under the 3% of GDP threshold in both 2014 and 2015. The state debt as a percentage of GDP will not decrease significantly, according to their report.
GKI foresees average annual inflation at 0.3% in 2014 and 2.5% in 2015.
