External Debt in Colombia
Colombia - External DebtGDP growth beat market expectations in Q1, but was still lower than that seen last year. The manufacturing plus retail and wholesale trade sectors grew strongly, while the agricultural sector contracted. Turning to Q2, the data paints a mixed picture. The manufacturing PMI averaged higher in April–May than it did in Q1, thanks to robust domestic demand, with consumer confidence ticking up in April–May. That said, inflation remained at a close to 22-year high in May and interest rates continue to rise, boding poorly for consumer spending. In politics, all eyes are on the presidential elections. In a dramatic development, Rodolfo Hernández, a 77-year-old right-wing populist, tripled his support in just over two months to reach the second round of the elections—to be held on 19 June—along with left-wing frontrunner Gustavo Petro.
