Honduras: GDP to Grow between 3.4% and 3.7% in 2017

The Central Bank has forecast for this year inflation of 4.5% with a margin of ± 1%, and annual growth of 3.6% in exports.

Friday, March 3, 2017

From a report by the Central Bank:

The Central Bank of Honduras (BCH), through Resolution No.81-3 / 2017 of March 2, 2017, approved the 2017-2018 Monetary Program (MP), which sets out the measures for monetary, credit and exchange policy and the prospects of the Honduran economy and the international context for a two-year horizon, in order to guide operators and the general public in decision-making and formation of expectations. 

At the close of 2016, annual inflation was 3.31%, ranking throughout the year below the lower limit of the range set in the MP from 2016 to 2017. This result was due to a combination of the evolution of international prices of oil and raw materials, the performance of monetary policy and expectations of economic agents.
