The economy is projected to remain robust, growing 3.3% in 2017 and 4.1% in 2018, led by persistently strong domestic demand. The strengthening labour market and rising incomes will further raise household consumption. Unemployment may fall to near 7½ per cent in 2018, the lowest level since independence. Exporters are projected to continue to gain market share, allowing the current account to reach a modest surplus. Consumer price inflation is expected to rise gradually, as energy prices pick up and the labour market tightens.
