The Monthly Index of Economic Activity (MIEA) in the Republic, for the cumulative period from January to June 2013, measured in terms of the original series, grew by 6.31% compared to the same period in 2012. The sectors which showed greatest dynamism in the economy were: fishing, construction, mining and quarrying, community, social and personal services, transport, storage and communications, hotels and restaurants, manufacturing, educational services and private health and financial intermediation. The other sectors registered positive results but at a slower pace, with the exception of trade which continued to show a decline, because of limitations in the Colon Free Zone.

Fishing continued to show positive levels, mainly due to increased capture and export of shrimp and some other export-oriented species.
