Hide / Show Abstract

The moderate recovery and gradual economic rebalancing is projected to continue. Exports will remain the main driver of growth, making Ireland’s outlook largely dependent on developments in trading partners. Domestic demand is projected to gradually strengthen. Business investment should pick up as multinational enterprises continue to build up their production facilities. The unemployment rate is expected to decline only slightly, reflecting the slow recovery in labour-intensive domestic sectors and persistent skill mismatches. On the assumption of full policy implementation, the fiscal deficit should continue to decline through the projection period.
