Economic activity is projected to recover in 2014 and 2015 as confidence improves further, financial market fragmentation declines and fiscal consolidation eases. The pace will remain moderate though, with deleveraging, weak bank balance sheets and tight credit conditions bearing on economic activity, especially in the vulnerable countries. High unemployment and large margins of excess capacity will recede only slowly and inflation will therefore remain subdued.
