National Bank Of Hungary Raises 2021 GDP Forecast To 4-6 Percent
The National Bank of Hungary expects Hungary’s GDP to grow by 4-6% this year, forecasts from its latest quarterly Inflation Report show.

The central bank had forecast a growth rate of between 3.5% and 6.0% in its previous report released in December.

The finance ministry expects GDP to expand by 4-5% this year. The NBH puts the average annual inflation rate for this year at 3.8-3.9%, above the 3.5-3.6% range forecast in December.

The central bank sees the economy expanding by 5.0-6.0% next year and by 3.5% in 2023. The bank’s forecasts for inflation show CPI at 2.9-3.0% in 2022.

It left the 2023 inflation forecast unchanged at 3.0%.

The NBH noted that the forecast is in a range because of the uncertain economic prospects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.
