UPDATED ECONOMIC OVERVIEW OF LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN 2013 [April 2014]
[full-text, 29 pages]
This report updates the analysis set out in the Preliminary Overview of Latin America and the Caribbean 2013, released in December 2013, on the basis of official data published by the countries in the region in the subsequent months, and presents a revised economic outlook for 2014. In addition, it examines the external factors influencing the region's performance and their impact on the different components of the balance of payments and summarizes the challenges and main trends in relation to monetary, exchange-rate and fiscal policy. It confirms the deceleration of growth analysed in the Preliminary Overview, giving a revised regional rate of 2.5% for 2013. This slowdown curbed job creation, but did not drive up the rate of unemployment. The second part of the report reviews the main internal and external factors that will determine the region's economic performance in 2014. Although the world economy is expected to pick up with respect to 2013, Latin America and the Caribbean will grow at a similar rate to the previous year as a result of several factors.
