Inflation in El Salvador

El Salvador Inflation | Economic News & Forecasts

El Salvador - Inflation

The economy likely gained speed in Q4 2018 as reflected by the monthly economic activity index showing a year-on-year acceleration in the quarter, led by growth in retail, construction and financial activities. Moving to Q1 2019, available data appears to paint a mixed picture: While merchandise exports contracted year-on-year in January for the third consecutive month, healthy family remittances growth in January should have continued to drive private consumption. Moreover, in early March the U.S. Department of Homeland Security extended temporary protected status until 2 January 2020 for El Salvador, boding well for remittances and private consumption this year.
