The central bank expects the economy to grow 0.4 percent in the second quarter, 1.2 percent in the third and 3.1 percent in the final three months of this year, the BI governor said. Data released by the central bank of Wednesday showed that the consumer confidence index dropped to 84.8 in April from 113.8 in March. The latest reading was reportedly the lowest in 12 years.
