Economic growth is projected to be 1.3% in 2019-20. Global economic conditions will weigh on exports, but tax cuts and the impact of the social emergency measures are holding up disposable income and consumption. Supportive financing conditions and higher business profit margins will moderate a deceleration of investment. Ongoing labour market reforms will also help job creation and promote inclusiveness. The unemployment rate will decline towards 8.5% at the end of 2020, while core inflation will strengthen only slightly.
