Unemployment in Dominican Republic
Dominican Republic - UnemploymentMomentum seemingly eased in Q1 2022, in part due to a tougher base effect. Economic activity moderated in annual terms in January–March amid a record-breaking wave of Covid-19 cases in January and associated restrictions. Moreover, a year-on-year fall in remittances and elevated inflation in Q1 should have dented private spending. However, late February’s scrapping of all pandemic-related restrictions for citizens should have cushioned household consumption’s fall. In addition, the tourism sector remained robust, with annual growth in visitor arrivals in Q1 picking up on an annual basis. Turning to Q2, domestic conditions remained muted: Economic activity grew at a 15-month low in April. Lastly, the IMF concluded its Article IV consultation in the country on 16 May. The Fund heralded the country’s resilience to external shocks thanks to sound fiscal policy.
