Show Abstract /
Economic activity, which has so far been mainly driven by exports, is expected to decline in 2012. As domestic demand gradually improves, growth should return in 2013. A weak currency, rising oil prices and hikes in indirect taxes have significantly increased prices, though their effects should moderate gradually.
