It is important to focus on the growing trend that is in place for over ten years now. Growth this year is almost double that of the previous year (2.6%), and confirms the average growth between 2001 and 2013 of 4.8%.

The constant growth is reflected in the willingness to renew the Country with many projects in different industries, especially construction and infrastructure with many tenders opened to foreign companies, as for example the one we report below.
