Financial Leaders' Hall of Fame 2017

Noting that Romania posted another quarter of fast economic growth, Fitch Ratings pointed out recently that "pro-cyclical fiscal policy and rapid wage growth in 2017 have increased overheating risks.' The ratings agency emphasized that the country's rapid growth presented "risks to external indicators and there is also a risk of overheating as wages outpace productivity growth." Fitch added: "The National Bank of Romania (NBR) estimates that the economy is operating around 2pp above full capacity, and we expect the current account deficit to widen beyond 3% of GDP this year. The NBR also revised its inflation forecasts higher at its last monetary policy meeting on August 4."
It also indicated that the strong growth had been supported by fiscal relaxation. “Cuts in excise duties and VAT have led to missed fiscal targets as tax revenue has remained flat and spending risen. Romania's budget deficit (cash basis) over the first five months was almost three times as large as a year earlier. We expect some offsetting cuts to government consumption and capital spending (where Romania has a track record of under-execution), while higher wages will increase social contributions. But we still forecast the deficit to widen this year, to 3.7% of GDP, from 3% in 2016, and our baseline projections see general gross government debt rising to 43.6% of GDP at end-2019 from 37.6% at end-2016.” 
Looking ahead, Fitch expects Romania’s growth to slow to 3.4 percent in 2018 and 3.5 percent in 2019.
