Economic growth in Bulgaria would slow down over the next 2 years, but would remain close to its potential, according to the European Commission's autumn report. Brussels expects a moderate pace of Bulgarian exports, a fall in inflation, budget surplus and a continuing decline in public debt. The European Commission has raised its forecast for the growth of Bulgarian GDP in 2019 by 0.3% to 3.6%. For 2020, a sharp slowdown in growth to the level of 3.0% is expected. The Commission's estimates differ from the expectations of the Bulgarian Ministry of Finance. Sofia has projected GDP growth of 3.4 per cent in 2019 and 3.3 per cent in 2020.
