Economic activity has been more or less stagnant over the last two years and is likely to pick up only slowly in 2014. Real GDP growth is projected to be slightly negative in 2013 and to reach 0.8% in 2014. The unemployment rate would therefore continue to increase until the end of 2014. Despite VAT hikes, headline inflation should recede towards 1% or less.
