Description

The outlook for the Central America and Caribbean economies is expected to stay bleak in 2020, registering technical recession in Q2–Q3 of 2020 and a full year recession for 2021. Local and global containment measures, along with the economies’ large dependence on tourism and remittances particularly coming from the United States, have led to a massive contraction in government revenues across countries in the regions. On the upside, the fact that most governments have started relaxing social distancing measures from May will help the resumption of activities from Q3. Frost & Sullivan predicts the Central American and Caribbean economies to contract -0.9% in 2020, before growing 2.0% in 2021.
