(ANSA) - BELGRADE - Romania may soon be included among the 'high income economies' in the world, as defined by the World Bank definition, according to the specialized financial portal Business Review. Business Review recalled that in 2016 Romania had a gross national income (GNI) per capita of USD 9,480, but thanks to the economic growth of 6.9 per cent in 2017 and due to the optimistic forecasts for 2018, "Romania will reach a level of about EUR 10,250 or USD 12,300 per capita, just over the World Bank's threshold for high income economies" already in 2018 or by 2019.

Currently, Business Review said that, on the basis of the latest World Bank report, 78 countries and territories are currently considered as being 'high income economies', including 26 out of 28 European Union member states. Bulgaria and Romania are still out of the group of the world economies with the highest income per capita. (ANSA).
