Growth is projected to accelerate in 2013 as improving external conditions give a boost to exports. While public investment will contract, private investment will pick up, driven by rising capacity utilisation and the planned modernisation of energy and transport infrastructure. Private consumption growth will be underpinned by increasing employment and wages. Headline inflation will continue to fall due to softening commodity prices, even while domestic price pressures are strengthening.
