    On the partial evidence so far available, it seems likely that there was a slight decline in economic activity in the final quarter of 1992. However, the economy had been expanding quite rapidly before the September currency crisis, so that the annual growth rate of real GNP in 1992 is estimated at 2% per cent. The conditions of international uncertainty and very high domestic interest rates, which were responsible for the downturn in late 1992, have persisted for most of the first quarter of 1993. It is thus reasonable to assume that the economy continued to stagnate or decline. The restoration of industrial competitiveness through the devaluation of the Irish pound, the subsequent reduction in domestic interest rates, and the injection of substantial EC capital funds should all help to reverse this decline.
