The revival of previously depressed domestic demand backs high GDP growth in Latvia. Moreover,
strong growth in exports to Russia and the Baltic neighbours counterbalances the flagging demand
of the euro area. Falling consumer inflation rates and a reduction of the budget deficit to 1.4% of
GDP in 2012 allows Latvia to head towards euro area accession in 2014.
