Feb. 04 -- BUCHAREST -- The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates for 2014 a 2.2 percent economic growth for Romania , after an advance of 2.8 percent registered last year, head of the IMF mission in Romania Andrea Schaechter told a press conference at the end of the visit to Bucharest . For 2013, we estimate a 2.8 percent increase in the GDP, the highest economic growth since the beginning of the crisis, she said, mentioning the good agricultural year and exports among the factors having determined this growth. This year Romania's economy will grow 2.2 percent, Andrea Schaechter added. It is a lower economic growth than last year, but there will also be other sectors besides agriculture that will play an important role. We are optimistic that new jobs will be created, Schaechter pointed out. ___ (c)2014 Agerpres, Bucharest, Romania Visit Agerpres, Bucharest, Romania at www1.agerpres.ro/english Distributed by MCT Information Services
