GDP growth in the first half of 2015 was supported by a robust upturn in exports in the first quarter. The strengthening in the labour market contributed to the unemployment rate dropping to below 10% by mid-year. However, economic performance was uneven across sectors, while progress in key policy reform areas was limited. Overall, the chances are that a moderate recovery will continue in the short term with GDP rising higher than 2% for 2015 as a whole.
