Guatemala - Exchange Rate

The economic recovery eased in the third quarter amid a less favorable base effect. Domestic demand cooled, although household spending continued to grow at a fairly rapid pace. The external sector’s performance worsened in the quarter, as growth in exports of goods and services decelerated at a quicker pace than imports. Momentum likely continued to ease in Q4. Economic activity growth cooled to an eight-month low in October, while merchandise export growth lost steam in the same month. On the other hand, growth in remittances picked up pace in the quarter as a whole, and reached a five-month high in November. This, coupled with softer price pressures in the quarter, bodes well for household consumption in the final stage of last year. Turning to this year, Covid-19 cases surged in early January, posing a health risk given the country’s low vaccination rate.
