The economy is projected to grow at a strong pace. Private consumption will continue to benefit from the increasingly robust labour market. Intensifying labour shortages will boost wage growth and, thereby, inflation. Exports will move up vigorously, as new automotive production capacity comes on stream. Business investment will remain strong, while public investment should pick up with the launch of new infrastructure projects.
