Public debt has risen since the crisis, but remains low, at an estimated 37.5% of GDP on the EU harmonised (ESA 95) definition at end-2013, and is not expected to rise above 40% by 2015. Romania has exited the EU's excessive deficit procedure (EDP) and The Economist Intelligence Unit forecasts further fiscal stabilisation in 2014.

The leu may be subject to volatility as a result of tapering by the US Federal Reserve and a move away from emerging-market assets. Pressure on the currency may also arise from continuing euro zone turbulence and domestic policy uncertainty, although the signing of a new two-year stand-by arrangement with the IMF will help to mitigate investor concern. We expect that economic recovery will cause the leu to strengthen in the longer term.

A central bank investigation into banks' reporting of bad debts is expected to result in a sharp rise in the ratio of non-performing loans (NPLs) at end-2013, and the level of NPLs will remain high in 2014. Romania has significant exposure to Greek banks, whose liquidity and capital-adequacy levels are high, but deleveraging remains a concern.
