Economic growth is projected to continue to strengthen to about 1½ per cent in 2018, boosted by investment and consumption. Firming domestic demand will be supported by rising confidence, cuts in social contribution and business taxes and continued favourable financing conditions. The labour market will gradually recover. Inflation will remain low, since pressures on production capacity are limited. The current account deficit is expected to increase slightly, as solid domestic demand will boost imports.
