Australia's Growth May Gain Momentum by the End of This Year

Australia has weathered the global downturn much better than other major economies. In fact, Australia’s managed to record year-over-year growth in 2009 due to a strong banking system and successful monetary and fiscal policy. In this article we argue that although the expansion recorded in the first quarter of 2010 was weaker than expected, the recent surge in commodity prices, improving labor market and strong domestic demand are likely to support sustainable growth this year.
