Recession will continue through 2016, with falling real incomes depressing consumption and high interest rates further dampening investment. We now forecast that the economy will shrink by 2% this year. However, export revenues are expected to start picking up in H2 2016, helped by the start of a gradual recovery in commodity prices. This will revive production from 2017 onwards.

But the medium-term outlook is for only very modest GDP growth, averaging less than 1.5% pa in 2018-19. In addition to the structural problems, the country will need to finance a stubborn external deficit and mounting external debt; this may force a politically difficult return to IMF borrowing as other credit lines become strained.
