Hide / Show Abstract

Economic activity is picking up after a weak 2017 outturn. An improving external environment and competitiveness gains will revive activity, raising export growth and invigorating investment. Domestic demand should provide additional stimulus as unemployment decreases and incomes rise. Inflation is projected to remain low given excess capacity. The large current account surplus will persist.
