The economy slipped back into recession in the latter part of 2015 after growing in late 2014 and the first half of 2015. Growth is projected to gain some momentum in the second half of 2016 as confidence strengthens and as structural reforms finally take hold and boost exports and investment. Inflation remains low due to the very depressed state of the economy. Unemployment will decline, but only gradually, which emphasises the importance of poverty reduction efforts.
