The growth rate, which was higher even than China’s 6.9% economic growth in 2017, surpasses even the most optimistic scenarios.

Romania’s Prognosis Commission has the highest growth estimation for 2017, namely 6.1%.

In the fourth quarter, the local economy grew by 7% (in seasonally adjusted terms) compared to the same quarter of 2016, according to INS. Compared to the previous quarter, the growth rate was 0.6%.
