Despite the persistently unfavourable COVID-19 situation, the economy has rebounded strongly and exceeded the pre-pandemic level in Q2 2021. But inflation has also accelerated markedly. In response, the policy interest rate has been hiked sharply, and more rises are likely to follow. Real GDP is projected to grow by 4% this year and by around 3% per year in 2022-23.
