Following a soft patch in the second half of 2012, growth is projected to pick up again to around 4% in 2013 and 2014, underpinned by increasing oil prices and easing headwinds from the euro area crisis. Gradual disinflation will continue after a temporary rebound of inflation due to the delayed increase of administrative prices and food price increases. The budget will be in surplus, but the non-oil deficit will remain substantial. The large current account surplus will diminish slowly.
