Private consumption in the country is supported by the stability of the labor market and the reduction of labor taxation. The acceleration of the disbursement of funds provided to Lithuania by the European Union is also a positive factor for economic growth. Inflation in 2019 is expected at 2.2%, which is higher than the previous forecast of 2.1%.
