After a weak 2015, economic growth is projected to strengthen gradually as domestic demand receives support from negative interest rates and increasing real wages. With the currency stabilising over recent months and oil prices recovering, consumer prices should turn up during 2017. After a recent rise, unemployment will start to fall in 2017, but the outsized current account surplus will persist.
