Nicaragua: Exports Up 15% in 2017

In 2017, sales abroad totaled $2.548 billion, 15% more than in 2016, and the increase was explained by exports of agricultural, fishery and manufactured products.

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

The Central Bank of Nicaragua (BCN) reported that " ...At the end of 2017, the merchandise trade deficit registered a decrease of 3.5 percent, totaling 3,113.1 million dollars, which represents a fall of 114.5 million dollars in relation to the deficit generated in 2016."

The BCN report adds that " ...Meanwhile, FOB imports increased by 3.8 percent compared to 2016, showing a year-on-year drop in December (-2.8%) that changed the evolution observed in the previous months."

"The behavior of imports in 2017 was the result of the increase observed in the oil bill (28.1%), intermediate goods (3.9%) and, to a lesser extent, consumer goods (1.0%), despite a contraction in purchases of capital goods (-5.2%)."
