Following a deep recession, the economy has grown steadily since late 2010. The recovery, which is being led by private consumption and residential and business investment, is projected to continue with growth at just over 2½ per cent in both 2013 and 2014. Inflation is set to fall sharply from almost 6% in spring 2012 to 3½ per cent by 2014, but to remain above the authorities’ target of 2.5%.
