Description

The sixty-fifth edition of Economic Survey of Latin America and the Caribbean covers the two-year period 2012 2013. As in previous editions, the first part examines the recent performance of the economies of the region and the outlook for the current year. The second part discusses long-term aspects of the economic development of Latin America and the Caribbean. Country notes, which look at the economic situation of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean during 2012 and the first half of 2013, may be viewed on the ECLAC webpage (www.eclac.org). These notes are published along with a statistical annex, which tracks the main economic indicators. The tables in the statistical annex show, at a glance, data for recent years and can be used to create spreadsheets. The deadline for updating the statistical information in this publication was 30 June 2013.
