Economic recovery in 2021 will be slower than expected, with GDP growing by 3.8% in annual terms. Private consumption will remain the main driver of growth throughout the forecast period. The recent acceleration in inflation is only temporary: it will slow down in 2022-2023. Any further delays to IMF funding disbursements would constitute a major risk to growth.
