Summary:

Enhancement of liquefied natural gas capacity (LNG), government support to the banking system, and increase in public spending sustain the high growth rates. There is a need to monitor aggregate demand to prevent the resurgence of inflation pressures. The creation of a financial stability unit and the results of recent stress tests show the banking system’s resilience to market and credit risks. The coordination among data providers and intention to seek technical assistance in consumer price index are noted.
