The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has upgraded in Novemebr 2017 its economic growth forecast for Slovenia by 1.5 percentage points to 4%. It also upgraded the forecast for next year by 0.7 points to 2.9%. According to the bank, the growth is being led by domestic demand, which benefits from "strong consumption momentum and strong recovery in investments with the start of the new EU funding cycle".  

Also in November 2017, the European Commission has upgraded Slovenia's GDP growth forecast for 2017 by 1.4 percentage points to 4.7%. In 2018 Slovenia's economy is expected to expand by 4%, which is 0.9 percentage points more than in the Commission's spring forecast. The Commission wrote Slovenia's real GDP increased by 4.8% in the first half of the year, thereby surpassing the pre-crisis level.  

Domestic demand increased by another 3.4%, while investment also got stronger, by 10%. Export growth remained strong as well, exceeding import growth, which contributed additionally to the current account surplus. Solid growth is also expected in the second half.
