Economic growth of 3.9% in 2011 was driven by better agricultural output and steady industrial activity. But domestic commerce was fragile because of two consecutive fuel price rises and dearer food imports. The budget deficit was put at 3.8% of GDP, up from 2.8% in 2010, due to efforts since 2009 to soften the effects of the world economic crisis.
