Economic growth is projected to increase in 2017, driven by expansionary fiscal policy, household wealth gains and a resumption in business investment, in particular in the resource sector following the rebound in commodity prices. In 2018, growth is likely to ease but remain robust, as government spending increases taper off. Consumer price inflation is expected to rise to above 2% in late 2018 as excess capacity is gradually eliminated and wage growth picks up.
