Promising Economic Indicators and Projections in the first quarter of 2023
After a very successful 2022, the first quarter of 2023 has promising economic indicators and projections.
According to the latest Economic Projections Report, the World Bank has upheld its growth projections for the Montenegrin economy for this year and the following year.
In January, the World Bank estimated that Montenegro’s gross domestic product (GDP) would experience a growth rate of 3.4% this year, with a slight moderation to 3.1% next year.
These figures have remained unchanged in the new report published on the World Bank’s website.
This steady forecast reflects the stability and resilience of Montenegro’s economy, which continues to attract local and international investors.
It highlights the ongoing efforts of the Montenegrin government to implement strategic economic reforms and foster an environment conducive to sustainable growth.
The Government of Montenegro published the data from EUROSTAT about the GDP growth rate for the first quarter of 2023, and Montenegro has the second biggest rate after the Island.
Tourism is one of the main contributors to Montenegrin’s GDP, and we already have positive trends in 2023.
In the first three months, according to the preliminary data, tourist arrivals in Montenegro were almost 60% higher than in the same period of the previous year.
This information encourages the expectations of tourism officials that this summer tourist season will surpass the record from 2019.
In conclusion of all of these indicators and results, Montenegro’s stable economic outlook and favorable investment climate make it an ideal choice for businesses seeking long-term growth prospects in Southeast Europe.
