Economic growth is projected to slow to around 2½ per cent in 2019-20, reflecting weakness in domestic demand and international trade. Restructuring in the manufacturing sector, notably in some industries facing weak overseas demand, and double-digit increases in the minimum wage are holding back job creation. Fiscal stimulus is projected to support growth, while core inflation will pick up to around 1½ per cent in 2020.
