Output remains on a solid growth trajectory, propelled by household demand. Steady employment gains continue to push down the unemployment rate and other indicators of labour market slack. Domestic demand will continue to be sustained by supportive financial conditions, the improving labour market and the boost to household purchasing power from low energy prices and the stronger dollar. However, the boost from these influences should gradually subside, and will be damped by weaker export growth due to sluggish external demand and the recent strengthening of the dollar.
