Political risk is unusually high following the recent election, and in particular the potential for a constitutional crisis in the Federation. This will have an impact on reforms and policy-making, but shouldn’t impact growth too much. We think that growth will remain in the range of 3-3.5% during the forecast period, with external factors such as remittances, exports and tourism likely to remain important. Inflation will stay low, while the labour market will improve slowly.
