Country Economic Forecasts - Malta
Despite the deepening political problems, we expect Malta's GDP growth to remain robust over the forecast period. However, lower confidence indicators point to the pace of expansion moderating from the levels in 2017 and 2018. We have nudged down our forecast for 2019 to 3.8% from 3.9% previously, and 2020 to 3.4% from 3.7%. The weak eurozone has led us to reduce our export growth outlook while stronger investment means we have pushed up imports.
