In December, the Armenian parliament adopted the  state budget of the republic for 2018, which provides for GDP growth  of 4.5%. Forecasts of economic growth for 2018 are largely due to the  outlined positive dynamics in 2017, as a result of which the Ministry  of Finance raised forecasts for economic growth for 2017 from the  target of 3.2% to 4.3%.

According to the forecast of the EDB in 2017, the  GDP of Armenia is expected to grow by 2.9%, the Asian Development  Bank - by 2.2%. Fitch improved the forecast for GDP growth in Armenia  in 2017 from the previous 2.1% to the current 3.4% with an  acceleration to 3.6% in 2018. The state budget of Armenia for 2017  laid the GDP growth by 3.2%, with acceleration in 2018 to 4.5%.  According to the updated forecast of the Central Bank, Armenia's GDP  growth in 2017 will be 4.4-4.9%. According to the National  Statistical Service of Armenia, Armenia's GDP growth slowed to 0.2%  in 2016 from 3.2% in 2015. In January-October of 2017, economic  activity in Armenia increased by 7% (drivers - services, trade,  industrial sector), against almost stagnating 0.4% in the same period  in 2016.
