Economic revival is accelerating, with a full rebound to pre-pandemic performance in sight for this year. Rising consumer demand and new fiscal stimuli will support strong performance in the coming years, but inflationary pressure is re-emerging and is likely to persist next year. The forecasts for 2021 and 2022 have been revised upwards to 3.9% and 4.2%.
