Growth in Central America hits 4.1 percent but dark clouds loom on the horizon

Thursday, December 22, 2011

After the impact of the economic crisis of 2008-2009, Central America's economy has once again grown in 2011, at a pace of 4.1 percent, the Un Economic Commission for Latin America reports.

For next year, the commission reckons that Latin America as a whole will grow by 3.7 percent because of uncertainty in international financial markets.

This year, Panama led Latin America in terms of growth, by 10.5 percent. At the other end of the scale came El Salvador with 1.4 percent.
