At the opposite end there is Bucharest-Ilfov, 0.9 percent, down from the spring estimates, according to the projection of the main economic and social indicators in the territory by 2017, which was published by the National Commission on Prognosis (CNP).

If the spring prognosis estimated the fact that the Sud-Est and Sud-Vest regions will see the highest growth of the GDP, namely 1.9 percent, the recent projection of CNP reveals that Sud-Vest Oltenia will see the highest regional economic growth in 2013 (5 percent), whereas in Sud-Muntenia and Centru, the GDP advance will be 3.5 percent and 3.3 percent respectively.

According to the data mentioned before, the Vest region will have a 2.4 percent economic growth and Nord-Vest, 2.3 percent.

Relatively far from them there will be the economic growths in the regions of Nord-Est (1.6 percent), Sud-Est (1 percent) and Bucharest-Ilfov (0.9 percent), after the spring prognosis for this region had estimated a 1.9 percent increase.

In 2014 the highest increase in the GDP, 2.4 percent, will be registered in Sud-Est, 2.6 percent, Bucharest-Ilvof, Nord-Vest and Sud-Vest, 2.5 percent. The lowest increases, 2.3 percent, will be in the Vest.

In 2016 and 2017 all regions will have an economic growth topping 3 percent (expect for the Vest region, 2.9 percent in 2016), with the highest value in Sud-Vest Oltenia, 3.4 percent.


According to CNP, the estimate of Romania's economic growth will stay at 2.2 percent both in 2013 and in 2014. It will be 2.5 percent in 2015.The data mentioned above reveal the fact that Romania's GDP would amount to 3 percent in 2016 and to 3.3 percent one year later. (Source:
