Economic activity has picked up and broadened, supported by a turnaround in private sector confidence, continued monetary stimulus, a policy-induced recovery in the housing market and a more gradual pace of household and public sector deleveraging as automatic stabilisers operate. Growth is projected to strengthen further in 2014 and 2015, mainly supported by an upturn in gross fixed investment and exports. Despite exceeding the inflation target of 2%, headline inflation is projected to fall gradually in the next two years.
