GDP grew in the second quarter, following a decline in the previous two. Activity rebounded robustly on the back of resilient private consumption and an ongoing recovery in industrial production, which had contracted sharply in the previous months. Capacity utilisation is approaching pre-crisis levels in a number of manufacturing sectors. Investment has nevertheless yet to recover. Domestic demand is set to grow vigorously in the last quarter of 2009 and into 2010, supported by a still accommodative policy mix.
