We expect a slight uptick in transport sector growth in ---- as EU funding inflows resume and have accordingly revised our growth forecast upward to -.- Positive housing data indicating a steady growth in issued building permits as well as a brightening macroeconomic outlook for Romania underpins our expectation residential construction will emerge as the outperformer in ----, with growth projected at -.- this year and annualised average growth over the next five years anticipated to be -.- .
