Following a pause in mid-2012, output growth is projected to pick up gradually to around 4½ per cent by 2014, led by a rebound in exports as world trade gains momentum. Private consumption is likely to remain subdued, given the high level of household debt. Inflation, which has fallen to less than 2%, is expected to return to the central bank’s target range of 2.5-3.5%.
