El Salvador - GDP

The 2017 budget approved in January this year has come under fire due to the government’s exclusion of expenditure items estimated at over USD 600m, which means that El Salvador risks suffering liquidity problems by mid-2017, repeating the scenario seen last year. Without further fiscal adjustment, this leaves the government at risk of a substantial debt increase, in a context where the government has long been under pressure to halt the country’s spiraling debt problem. Mounting fiscal imbalances, coupled with slowing public consumption, had hampered growth last year. Though private consumption gained traction thanks to surging remittances, annual growth remained below the regional average of around 3.0%.
