The economy is expected to return to growth of 3% in 2017 and the medium term. In 2016, growth slowed temporarily, due to the underperformance of investments. The labour market continued to improve, although the unemployment rate remains exceptionally high. Stability was more of a concern than growth, as the country headed towards an electoral resolution to the political crisis. Looking ahead, political stability could push potential growth closer to 4%.
