Growth is projected to gradually strengthen, driven by higher infrastructure spending and, as the euro area recovers, stronger output, exports and investment in the mining sector. Consumption growth will remain solid as low unemployment fuels real wage growth. Strengthening domestic demand will be associated with a further decline in the current account surplus relative to GDP. Inflation is now falling due to the good harvest, but as economic growth picks up the pace of underlying disinflation will slow.
