Hide / Show Abstract

A large, but necessary, fiscal consolidation, continued bank deleveraging and weak external demand are projected to leave the economy in recession for some time. Inflation is set to fall to a very low level as economic slack increases. As global conditions improve and exports pick up, growth is projected to turn positive by the end of 2013, although unemployment will remain at very high levels for longer. Improvements in competitiveness are projected to eliminate the current account deficit by the end of the projection period.
