The World Bank says the economy will grow to 2.8% but warns that public debt is straining local banks and contributing to cash shortages.
The country expects to produce enough grain to feed itself.
However, wider problems persist. There is still a critical shortage of money that the World Bank blames on excessive government borrowing from local banks, and a high public service wage bill.
