export growth remained resilient, indicating further market share gains, including in the tourism sector.

Real GDP in Greece is forecast to reach 2.4% in 2020 and 2.0% in 2021. With business and
consumer confidence at pre-crisis levels at the end of 2019 and disposable income increasing,

unemployment falling to 16.6% in October 2019 (LFS data), down from 18.5% a year ago, though it remains the highest in the EU. The recent rise in the number of people in employment, on average.
