The economy is expected to contract further through 2012, due to necessary fiscal consolidation, deleveraging and a marked slowdown in external demand. Unemployment is set to rise further, while higher indirect taxes will push up prices. In 2013, a mainly export-led return to growth is expected to gather pace, as global conditions improve. Private domestic demand should also start growing again and the current account deficit is expected to narrow substantially.
