Costa Rica's economic activity continues to grow at very low rates.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011


An Aldesa analysis on the subject indicates that during February, the economy grew just 0.09%, resulting in a variation (February 2010 - February 2011) of 2.4%, according to the Monthly Economic Activity Index (MIEA).

In terms of sectors, the manufacturing sector shows a significant decline. Production value has fallen for two consecutive months after a second semester marked by stagnation of economic activity.

Hotel, restaurant and transportation services are those with the highest growth rate (February 2010 - February 2011). The construction sector continues with negative growth rates, having stabilized since the last quarter of last year.
