Growth will remain moderate at 1.2% in 2020-21, driven by domestic demand. Resilient job creation, notably for jobs with permanent contracts, tax cuts and the impact of the social emergency measures will raise household disposable income and consumption. Supportive financing conditions and high business profit margins will damp the slowdown in investment, despite weak and uncertain global economic conditions. The unemployment rate will decline slowly towards 8.1% at the end of 2021, while core inflation and wages will strengthen only slightly.
