Summary:

The economic recovery since 2004 has been accompanied by a steady rise in inflation. Several factors have contributed, including an expansionary monetary stance (with credit to the private sector growing by some 45 percent).

The authorities were encouraged to see that the implementation of their broad-based reforms elicited a positive supply response.
