English Also available in: French, German


Real GDP will continue to decline through to the end of 2008, reflecting mostly a sharp drop in domestic demand. Growth is projected to gradually pick up by the end of 2009 and into 2010, driven by stronger exports. Currently high inflationary pressures are expected to weaken in 2009, but the past real exchange rate appreciation will make the desired export driven recovery challenging.
