Activity is projected to pick up gradually. Corporate investment is recovering swiftly as business confidence has been boosted by the decline in political uncertainty and the commitment by the government to reduce red tape. Efforts to put large stalled infrastructure projects back on track are also beginning to pay off. Tight fiscal and monetary policies are needed to contain inflation, but will also restrain domestic demand. The current account deficit will increase slightly as domestic demand strengthens but remain sustainable.
