October 9 (SeeNews) - Credit rating agency D&B said on Tuesday it expects Slovenia’s gross domestic product (GDP) to grow by a real 5.9% this year, up from the earlier projected 4.8%, due to higher-then-expected growth in the first half of 2007.
The agency also raised its GDP growth forecast for next year to 4.8% from 4.4% previously, it said in a statement.
