The V-shaped recovery that we see suggests that the economy is back on track and will remain sound. GDP growth will accelerate to 6.4% in 2021 and will hover at above 4.5% in the medium term. The tourism sector has had an impressive year and is getting closer to its pre-pandemic level. Growth will be led by investment and by optimistic external and domestic demand, but downside risks stemming from the international markets and the pandemic call for vigilance.
