Costa Rica - Exchange Rate

The economy lost its footing in the third quarter, with annual economic growth slowing to an over five-year low. The slowdown primarily came on the back of lackluster private and government consumption. Private consumption was weighed on by rising unemployment, a large decrease in consumer confidence and widespread protests in September related to the fiscal reform bill (which passed on 3 December). Government consumption stalled in the quarter, with no change observed compared to the same quarter a year earlier. On a brighter note, fixed investment growth held up well—although only because of a low base effect—and exports outpaced imports. The fourth quarter, meanwhile, began on an unconvincing note: Growth in economic activity slumped to a near five-year low in November, according to the Central Bank’s monthly index; consumer confidence deteriorated further in November and fiscal reform protests lasted until mid-December.
