Hide / Show Abstract

Growth will gain momentum over the next two years. Further improvements in export performance will be the main driver of the continuing recovery in 2015, and the contribution of domestic demand will become larger in 2016 as investment and private consumption pick up. Unemployment is set to fall further but will remain high, putting a lid on wage and price increases. Very low inflation will support competitiveness, but it also makes it more difficult for the corporate sector to reduce its debt.
