Description

Barring Puerto Rico, the economies of Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Panama, Jamaica, and Trinidad & Tobago are on a stable growth path in the second half of 2019. The regional Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at constant prices is estimated to register 3.2% growth in Q4 2019 and is forecast to grow by 2.8% annually. There are signs of improvement in the trade situation due to the decline in global interest rates. Costa Rica expects a subdued growth due to slowed down activity. Panama is expecting a rebound in 2019 supported by strong construction activities, whereas the Dominican Republic might slightly decelerate. Growth in Guatemala and Trinidad & Tobago will accelerate supported by improving domestic demand. Puerto Rico is likely to continue its recession through the forecast period with heavy migration resulting in drop in population.
