Fiscal Balance in Nicaragua

Nicaragua Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Nicaragua - Fiscal Balance

The economy again contracted sharply in the Q3 as political developments continued to choke the tourism and financial sectors. Fixed investment fell at a dizzying pace in the quarter and household consumption also declined notably. Data for Q4 paints an equally grim picture, with the formal labor market shrinking further in October. While remittance inflows were robust in October and November, they were likely not enough to keep the economy afloat. Turning to the political arena, the government’s further crackdown on the press and its recent ban of several NGOs that have been critical of Ortega’s government were additional blows in the assault on civil liberties. Meanwhile, the U.S. NICA Act implemented in December will restrict financial aid to Nicaragua, further weighing on the government’s already precarious finances.
