The economy has finally recovered from unnecessary fiscal consolidation. With low levels of public and private debt and growth-friendly monetary and fiscal policies, continuing recovery in 2015-2017 seems assured. But the growth speed-up can be gradual as fixed investment (especially in housing) is unlikely to expand at a very high rate. It will take some time before investment enters a path of fast and sustained growth. Also, uncertainties persist concerning the performance of foreign trade.
