(11 December 2013) The economies of Latin America and the Caribbean will expand by 3.2% in 2014, which is higher than the 2.6% from the end of 2013, according to a new ECLAC report launched today at a press conference in Santiago, Chile.

In its annual report Preliminary Overview of the Economies of Latin America and the Caribbean 2013, ECLAC points out that less buoyant external demand, greater international financial volatility and falling consumption were the factors determining the more modest economic performance of countries in 2013, which brought down the 3.0% estimate put forward by the Commission in July.

(10 September 2013) The foreign trade performance of Latin America and the Caribbean reflects the weak global economy. Regional export values are expected to grow by just 1.5% in 2013 (3% in volumes and -1.5% in prices) - which is similar to the 1.4% growth observed in 2012. Meanwhile, imports are expected to expand by 4.5%, which will bring the region's trade surplus down to 8.0 billion dollars in 2013 (compared to 41.0 billion dollars in 2012), according to estimates presented today in Santiago in a new report from the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).
