Hide / Show Abstract

The recovery has picked up to a robust pace, with a very accommodative monetary policy and an improving labour market supporting household consumption. Economic activity is expected to continue to be sustained by household spending and further boosted by a pick-up in investment. Headline inflation has fallen below the 2% inflation target, but is projected to slightly exceed it by late 2015 as economic slack is taken up.
