"The growth is a natural course, after we managed to stabilize the economy in 2016. It suffered greatly from the crisis of 2014-2015, caused by the banking sector and political ignorance, which in it's turn caused troubles in the Government. Now we have a stable government and the economy followed suit. 2017 is expected to be the year of economic growth" chief editor of Publika TV, Anatol Câşlaru stated.
