The economy has slowed, with the weakness focussed in manufacturing and investment spending. Softening external demand, together with continued strength in imports, led to a widening current account deficit. Although inflation has moderated from double-digit rates it remains relatively high and expected increases in regulated prices of some oil-related products will add to price pressures which will continue to weigh on household consumption. This in turn will make the climate for investment less favourable. As a result, growth is expected to remain subdued through much of the year.
