The situation in Malta
In Malta, economic growth is projected to remain robust over the forecast period, driven by strong domestic demand. Job creation and the unemployment rate are projected to outperform euro-area peers. The favourable macroeconomic outlook is set to result in a further decline in the budget deficit.
Real GDP growth reached 4% y-o-y in the final quarter of the year, the highest rate of growth since 2010, driven by a spur in private consumption, stronger investment and by government expenditure. After reaching 3.5% for the year as a whole in 2014, real GDP growth is forecast to accelerate slightly to 3.6% in 2015 before moderating to 3.2% in 2016. The main drivers of growth over 2015 and 2016, similar to 2014, are projected to be investment, benefiting from a number of large-scale construction and energy projects and EU fund absorption (mostly in 2015), and private consumption, on the back of increasing disposable incomes and favourable consumer sentiment.
