Growth slowed in 2011, reflecting the deceleration in world trade and sluggish activity in the domestic sector, which has not yet fully benefited from the export-led recovery from the 2008 global crisis. More moderate growth is helping to bring inflation back into the central bank’s target range of 2 to 4%. Aided by continued buoyant demand from China, which accounts for a quarter of its exports, and won depreciation, exports are projected to lead a gradual upturn, with output growing by just over 4% in 2013, with the unemployment rate at around 3½ per cent.
