IMF: Israel GDP growth unchanged at 3.4% in 2014

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) reported it expects Israel's GDP growth to remain stable at 3.4% in 2014.

 

The IMF noted however that social disparities pose a threat to the economy. In its annual report on Israel, the fund noted that “The Israeli economy has weathered the global crisis remarkably well, but growth momentum is slowing: exports, at 40% of GDP, have been under pressure, reflecting weakness in the global economy and a sharp appreciation of the shekel.”

 

It forecast that GDP growth of 3.4% over the past two years will be repeated in 2014, with unemployment advancing slightly from 6.4% in 2013 to 6.7% in 2014. The IMF also forecast a significant drop in the rate of growth of private consumption to a mere 3.2%.
