Costa Rica - Population

The economy expanded at the swiftest pace in 30 years in Q3, after a firm rebound in government spending and quicker private consumption growth. Turning to Q4, high-frequency indicators paint a mixed picture: Although economic activity grew robustly in October–November, it has continued to lose pace for the last five months. Moreover, import growth comfortably outpaced export growth in both October and November, potentially weighing on the external sector. Meanwhile, after loosening pandemic-related restrictions on 29 December, a record surge in Covid-19 cases led authorities to tighten them again on 12 January. That said, a relatively high vaccination rate should provide some protection to the health system. In politics, although former president José María Figueres is leading some polls in the run-up to the presidential elections on 6 February, no clear favorite has emerged among the record number of candidates.
