Guatemala - Exchange Rate

The economy will have expanded at an accelerated rate in the second quarter. Economic activity growth gained steam in the quarter, reaching an all-time high in May. This, coupled with notably stronger growth in merchandise imports in the quarter, suggests domestic demand firmed. Moreover, growth in remittances gained steam in the quarter, boding well for household spending. At the same time, markedly firmer growth in goods exports highlights healthier external demand. Turning to the third quarter, growth in both merchandise exports and imports continued apace in July, hinting at an ongoing recovery in demand dynamics. Moreover, growth in economic activity remained in the double-digits in the same month, while remittances reached an all-time high in USD terms in August. However, authorities maintained various Covid-19 restrictions through late August, likely impeding the recovery in activity somewhat.
