The SAR's growth forecast has been amended to a range of between a contraction of 0.5% and growth of 0.5%, down from the previous range of 1% to 2% growth. The administration also revised its estimate of second quarter GDP to minus 1.3% on a year-on-year basis, a slight improvement from the initial estimate of a 1.4% contraction.
