The muted recovery, led so far by exports, government consumption and restocking, is expected to come to a halt despite low interest rates and ongoing fiscal stimulus. The renewed global slowdown will depress exports and postpone private investment. Uncertainty and worsening labour market conditions will act as a drag on household consumption. As a result, activity is not projected to pick up pace before next spring. With continued slack in the economy, inflation is set to remain subdued.
