Central Americans worried about inflation

Wednesday, September 18, 2013


More than 80 percent of Central Americans feel that prices of basic goods are constantly rising and 73 percent say that they have a limited budget for making purchases, according to a market study by Consumer Watch 2013 released Tuesday.

The survey carried out by the Kantar WorldPanel company last February and March in the six countries on the isthmus found that the issues of greatest concern to the public in the region are inflation and security.

In Costa Rica and Guatemala, security is the second-major problem, according to those surveyed, but it does not figure among the top concerns for Panamanians or Nicaraguans.
