As well as economic growth, inflation should also slow next year. The average estimate for inflation in 2012 is 2.7 percent, compared to a forecast 4.2 percent this year.

Meanwhile, prognoses for economic growth this year have become more optimistic, with banks foreseeing 3.1-percent growth instead of the 2.9 percent predicted a month ago, TASR wrote.
