The Nicaraguan Foundation for Economic and Social Development (FUNIDES) presents its second report on economic conditions in 2014, which states that in the first 4 months of this year, the economy experienced a mild slowdown. According to the 12-month average variation of the Monthly Index of Economic Activity (IMEA), growth which had been over 5 percent since April 2013, fell to 4.8 percent in April, largely due to the earthquakes in that month.

On the supply side growth was driven by the manufacturing and agricultural sectors, while on the demand side, indicators show that it was driven by private consumption, growth in exports and government spending. FUNIDES indicates in its report that private investment is losing momentum and has stalled.
