Activity has been more or less stagnating since late 2011, and real GDP is projected to rise by only 0.3% in 2013, but then to expand by 1.3% in 2014. Joblessness and slack more generally will therefore continue to increase until late in the projection period, when the unemployment rate could reach 11¼ per cent. With weak growth, consumer price inflation is expected to fall gradually to below 1½ per cent per year.
