The recession is projected to continue into 2016, due to needed fiscal adjustment, tighter monetary policy to contain inflation and a lack of investor confidence related to political uncertainty. A slow recovery is expected to unfold into 2017 as confidence in macroeconomic policies improves. Unemployment is set to increase further in 2016. Although inflation expectations have come down, the return of inflation to the central bank’s target is likely to be delayed by the recent sharp depreciation of the currency.
