Economic growth is projected to pick up in 2014 and 2015 as export markets strengthen and the pace of fiscal consolidation slows down. Private consumption will contribute positively to GDP growth for the first time in five years with the recovery of the labour market and stronger real wages. Investment will progressively pick up thanks to a more favourable environment in the euro area, and will further expand the export-oriented manufacturing base. The completion of the highway network will further broaden the regional base for export-oriented activities.
