Growth returned in 2021, reflecting strong expansion in mining, trade, and transportation, along with higher consumption and public investment. Inflation jumped as continued disruption to supply chains boosted prices for food and other goods, while lower exports brought the sizable current account deficit. Growth is projected to slow in 2022 and recover slightly in 2023, with significant downside risks. Inflation will remain high, and the current account deficit will widen. Developing a greener economy will mitigate risks to sustainable development.
