Economic growth is projected to strengthen slowly. A pick-up in private investment will be underpinned by favourable financial conditions and export growth is expected to benefit from stronger growth in Europe. However, household consumption will be held back by ongoing fiscal consolidation and wage restraining measures. Nonetheless, activity should be sufficiently strong to allow a slow decline in unemployment. Inflation is set to tick up as the effects of lower energy prices dissipate.
