Hide / Show Abstract

Growth is projected to slow to around 1½ per cent in 2015 before rebounding in 2016. The recent fall in oil prices has resulted in declines in related investment and GDP. However, substitution towards non-energy exports is underway, supported by the currency depreciation and stronger foreign-market growth. Non-oil related business investment should strengthen with a lag. Following recent weather-related weakness, consumption growth should pick up. With economic slack fully absorbed, inflation is projected to return to the 2% midpoint of the inflation target range by mid-2016.
