South Eastern Europe Economic Forecast

Economic Snapshot for South-Eastern Europe

October 6, 2021

Economic growth in South-Eastern Europe seen picking up this year

After bouncing back this year from 2020’s pandemic-induced contraction, regional growth is forecast to slow notably next year. However, this will be chiefly due to a less favorable base effect, and looser domestic and foreign restrictions should keep aggregate demand healthy. Elevated fiscal shortfalls and debt burdens in certain countries cloud the outlook, however.

Inflationary pressures continue to build in South-Eastern Europe

Regional inflation continued its upward trend in August, rising to an over two-and-a-half-year high of 11.4% from 11.0% in July, amid a deteriorating price outlook in Turkey. Higher commodity prices, particularly for energy, and material shortages have pushed price pressures up recently. After firming this year, regional inflation should ease somewhat next year.
