The IMF said the short-term outlook also appears positive.
In a press release, the IMF cited the "vigorous performance" of Guatemala's economy in 2007, thanks to the "substantial improvements" brought about in the administration of taxes and the "constant efforts" to promote growth and regional integration.
The IMF said the nation has "maintained economic stability," and that the 5.7 per cent growth of the past year "has been above the historic average."
