Bulgaria Country Risk Report Q2 2016 - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Mar 04 2016

Bulgaria's GDP growth in the coming years will stay modest and amount to 1.5% in 2015 and 1.7% in 2016.

Private consumption will continue to be the main economic growth driver, as Bulgaria remains unable to attract foreign investment, which has bolstered GDP-growth in the past.

We are forecasting Bulgaria's budget deficit to remain under 3% of GDP in the years ahead and although the overall debt level will rise, it will stay at a low level compared to regional peers.

Bulgaria will generate a trade surplus in the coming years due to higher eurozone demand and a growing influx of international tourists.

By 2016 Bulgaria's price levels will start growing again, after experiencing the deepest deflationary period (after Greece and Cyprus) in the European Union.

Key Risks:

Enduring banking sector fragility due to a high proportion of non-performing loans (NPLs) poses the biggest threat to Bulgaria's financial stability, following the bailout of the country's fourth largest bank, Corporate Commercial Bank (KTB), in 2014.

Short-term political uncertainty will remain an issue in Bulgaria, as the current government is a fragile coalition between four parties, themselves mostly consisting of political alliances.
