After a strong rebound following the crisis, activity is expected to slow in line with weak growth in export markets and a decline in confidence. Due to persistent high unemployment and fiscal consolidation measures, public and private consumption is projected to remain subdued. With the improvement of the global environment and a pick-up in both exports and investment, GDP growth should strengthen from mid-2012 onwards. By damping tax revenues and increasing spending on social benefits, the economic slowdown will temporarily undermine fiscal consolidation plans.
