The export-oriented economy is set to contract this year as Covid-19 takes its toll. Capital spending will likely decline amid deteriorating sentiment and heightened uncertainties in the all-important automotive sector. In addition, exports are likely to slump on muted European demand and falling tourist arrivals.
