After several years of exceptionally high growth, GDP is expected to contract this year. Exports will be the main drag on activity, followed by private investment. Growth is projected to recover slowly during the course of 2010 due to a brighter outlook for world trade. With rising unemployment, wage growth is expected to slow considerably. Consumer price inflation is also expected to continue to ease, though it will stay above the euro area level.
