The Bank of Greece is predicting that the Greek economy will contract by 4.5 percent in 2012 and remain in mild recession next year.

In its annual report issued Monday, the central bank also predicted that unemployment would remain above 19 percent this year.

The gloomy predictions were made despite the coalition government successfully negotiating financial rescue deals with both its private creditors and emergency lenders from the eurozone and International Monetary Fund.
