Contrary to expectations, the Hungarian economy did not start to slow down in the first quarter of 2019, and it even accelerated to record speed. Based on this, GKI raised its forecast issued in March: GDP growth from 3.5 per cent to 4 per cent, investments from 7 per cent to 13 per cent, and consumption from 4 per cent to 4.3 per cent. As a result of the overheating of the economy, GKI expects that inflation will be much faster than previously thought (3.7 per cent instead of 3.2 per cent), and the surplus in the current and capital account will be significantly lower (only 1.4 per cent of GDP instead of 3.2 per cent).
