Bosnia and Herzegovina - Fiscal Balance

The economy appears to have slowed at the end of 2018 and outset of 2019. The stalled government formation likely weighed on public investment, while exports fell notably in January after flatlining in December. Nevertheless, the number of unemployed fell throughout Q4, pointing to a strengthening labor market. On the political front, the largest government entity assigned nearly all its appointed delegates in parliament in late February, which should ease political gridlock. Meanwhile, the IMF recently released a report that highlighted the inefficiency of Bosnia’s state-owned firms, noting the public sector remains highly indebted and recommending Bosnia prioritize restructuring and privatizing firms to boost growth.
