Central & Eastern Europe Economic Forecast

Economic Snapshot for Central & Eastern Europe

October 6, 2021

GDP forecast to expand robustly in 2021

The regional economy is set to expand solidly this year amid the easing of restrictions, before slowing somewhat in 2022. Although consumer spending in the region is set to accelerate, the normalization of global trade should see export growth slow, while weaker public spending will also contribute to the slowdown. The ongoing pandemic remains a key risk to the outlook.

Inflation to continue its upward trend

Regional inflation rose to 4.8% in August from 4.3% in July, as price pressures intensified in all countries within the region. Recovering activity will sustain inflationary pressures this year, and while easing supply chain disruptions should see inflation ease in 2022, higher consumer spending should see price pressures remain relatively elevated nonetheless.
