Costa Rican economy grows more than regional average in 2012

December 12, 2012

The Costa Rican economy will finish the year with 5 percent growth, a figure that is above the 3.2 percent average for Latin America, according to the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

The most dynamic sectors are transport, storage and telecommunications services, financial intermediation, insurance, real estate and manufacturing.

The study also says the government fiscal deficit will close at 4.5 percent. The fiscal deficit in November was 4 percent.

ECLAC predicted the country’s growth will drop to 3.5 percent next year.

In August, Costa Rica’s Central Bank predicted growth of 4.8 percent in 2012.
