Growth is projected to recover gradually in 2016 and 2017 as non-oil investment picks up in response to higher exports and some new oil investment projects start up. Aggregate demand will also be sustained by accommodative macroeconomic policies. Unemployment will rise but remain low in the OECD context. Inflation has been temporarily boosted by currency depreciation but is otherwise contained by remaining cyclical slack. The extensive welfare state is cushioning the impact of the economic slowdown on well-being and protecting the vulnerable.
