Hide / Show Abstract

Economic growth is projected to rise through 2017 and 2018. The historic peace agreement, higher oil prices and the start of infrastructure projects will boost investment. Private consumption will grow moderately. Stronger growth is projected to stabilise the unemployment rate. As the effects of El Niño wear off, inflation is projected to return to the central bank target range of 2-4% at the end of 2017. Although poverty has declined, inequality remains high.
