Economic activity rebounded in the second quarter after the sharp falls earlier on. Notwithstanding continued positive growth in the third quarter, annual GDP is expected to fall by close to 6% in 2009. Activity will gradually pick up in 2010 owing to a brighter outlook for world trade growth and a resumption of inflows of foreign direct investment, and growth should reach an annual rate of above 4% in 2011. The strong increase in unemployment is expected to gradually level off. With substantial slack in the economy, consumer price inflation is expected to remain fairly low.
