Show Abstract /
After slowing markedly over the course of 2011, activity stabilised in early 2012 as investor sentiment and financing conditions improved. Consumption and investment will continue to grow modestly in the near term and weakness in export demand persists. The economy is projected to return to trend growth by early 2013 driven by improving global conditions that will strengthen exports and investment.
