Central American economic integration is subject to permanent changes to individual member countries, regionally and internationally.
In this regard, in the middle of 2008, the economies of developed countries started to register monetary and financial imbalances globally and affected the real sector by reducing economic activity and generating high volumes of unemployment.
This effect means that the Central American region is also vulnerable to these phenomena, causing a slowdown in the pace of trade growth, reduction of family remittances and lower growth rates in economic activity, among others.
Against this background, the Central American Economic Integration Secretariat, SIECA initiated the development of this monthly report to monitor the behavior of the variables included in it, which may be a useful consultation tool for the formulation of regional policies on integration, benefiting the economic and social development of the people of Central America.
The International Monetary Fund has given a positive grade to Costa Rica in production of economic statistics.
According to the IMF Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes, economic data on national accounts, consumer and producer price indices, government finance, monetary, and balance of payments statistics, is correctly produced and communicated.
You can find data on national accounts, inflation, unemployment, payment balance, fiscal indicators, international trade and raw material prices.
The IMF published a series of selected macroeconomic data and raw material prices by country and region, with a two year projection, as part of the statistical appendix to the biannual report on global economic prospects.
