Tighter economic policy and weaker external demand have helped to cool the economy from the rapid growth rates seen in 2010, but inflationary pressures have not receded and credit growth is still buoyant. Activity is expected to grow at below-trend rates over the next two years, notwithstanding support from large infrastructure programmes. Inflation may fall to about the middle of the central bank’s target band.
