"We can do a lot with a monetary policy, but public investment
is essential if we want the recovery to be fast," he expressed.
The BCR official highlighted that the multiplying effect of public investment
on the economic activity is much higher than that of current spending.
"It is even greater than the multiplier generated by the tax refund," he remarked.

The economist also explained that information on public investment (available until November 17) suggested that the figure will be positive this month.
