Hide / Show Abstract

The economy has been in recession since mid-2012, but growth is projected to pick up by end-2013. Exports and, in turn, a gradual improvement in business investment will be the main drivers of the recovery. Ongoing fiscal consolidation and household deleveraging will hold back activity and growth will be too weak to prevent a further rise in the unemployment rate. Inflation is expected to fall after a VAT-related spike in early 2013.
