First-quarter 2015 data came in with negative growth, -1.8 over the first quarter of 2014. Some recovery of investment, on the demand side, and recovery of industrial production, on the supply side, suggest that perhaps the growth rate will be zero for the year as a whole. Slow recovery in the medium run is likely as investment and exports should continue to grow.
