Growth is holding up above 2% despite the uncertain environment, fiscal consolidation and tighter monetary conditions. The economy will rebalance, with a higher contribution of exports and investment to growth while private consumption will decelerate as high inflation dents purchasing power and credit expansion slows, owing to monetary policy tightening. Construction activity will pick up from its historically low levels, reflecting reconstruction after the September earthquakes. Recent structural reforms and successful tenders in the energy sector are expected to boost private investment.
