Country Risk report, June 2008

Generally speaking, the country risk for central american countries stays constant during the second quarter of 2008

Friday, August 1, 2008

The evaluation, done by the the most important risk rating companies, is based on the positive results reported by the treasuries of the governments, the efficient administration of public debt, and the positive macroeconomic stability of the region. However, Dominican Republic remains in the eye of some risk rating companies in relation to the issuance of a number of government bonds in international markets without complying with legal procedures.

Despite the fact that the Country Risk rating remains constant, the economic outlook is affected by a number of risks, most of them related to the troubled international financial market and the negative global macroeconomic conditions.

Additionally, a number of external factors affecting the economies of the region are threatening the macroeconomic stability, and becoming the main challenges for the governments, specially in monetary and fiscal policy making.
