The industry's output value in real terms recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.18% during this period.
The construction industry's forecast-period (2016-2020) outlook is positive, with growth supported by road, rail and energy infrastructure expansion projects.
Rising export demand and improving employment conditions are expected to attract investments in the industrial and residential construction markets.
Public and private sector investments under the National Development Strategy 2011-2016, the National Tourism Development Strategy 2014-2020 and the European Union (EU) Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 are expected to bolster construction activity.
