After stagnating in the first half of 2014, economic activity picked up slightly over the summer. Real GDP growth is projected to continue at a slow pace in 2015 and gain slightly more momentum in 2016, rising by only 0.4% in 2014, 0.8% in 2015 and 1.5% in 2016. Improvements in the global environment, a favourable exchange rate, lower energy prices, and a significantly slower pace of fiscal consolidation will help growth. The benefits of on-going and announced structural reforms are sizeable but will be perceptible mostly over the medium term.
