Economic growth is expected to slow to 2% in 2008 and 1½ per cent in 2009, largely on account of the effects of the financial turmoil. Job creation is likely to ease and unemployment to rise somewhat. Inflation is projected to fall as oil price effects subside. The budget surplus could shrink and may reach balance in 2009.
