Dominican Republic: Economic activity stable in January
March 16, 2015
In January, economic activity increased 7.3% over the same month last year, according to the monthly indicator for economic activity (IMAE, Indice Mensual de Actividad Economica). The expansion met December’s increase, which had marked the fastest increase in seven months.
However, the trend deteriorated in January, with annual average growth in economic activity inching down from 7.5% in December to 7.4%, thus reaching the lowest value in five months.
