Colombia slashes growth rate

Thursday, August 1, 2019


Colombia’s central bank on Tuesday drastically lowered the country’s projected growth rate and said the inflation rate target is not expected to be reached.

The announcement is a slap in the face of Finance Minister Alberto Carrasquilla, who presented next year’s government budget proposal on Monday based on apparently unrealistic expectations, according to Colombia Reports.
