The economy contracted further in 2012 owing to strong, but absolutely necessary, fiscal consolidation, declining wages and confidence, and weak external demand. Unemployment has risen to historical highs. A return to positive growth is projected only towards the end of 2014 as world trade strengthens, confidence returns and competitiveness improves.
