The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) will release its new 2023 economic growth projections for the region’s countries tomorrow Thursday, April 20.
In light of the behavior of the region’s economies in the first few months of this year, and taking into account the current situation of persistent volatility and international uncertainty, the United Nations regional organization will update the growth estimates that were released in its most recent flagship annual economic report Preliminary Overview of the Economies of Latin America and the Caribbean 2022, which was published on December 15 of last year.
The new figures will be presented exclusively via the launch of a press release, which will be issued and published on the institution’s website (www.cepal.org) at 11 a.m. local time in Chile (UTC/GMT -4). Media outlets should take note that there is no new document or report by ECLAC accompanying the estimates.
According to ECLAC, the rate of regional growth is expected to decelerate in 2023. The specific magnitudes of this phenomenon will be detailed in the aforementioned press release.
Members of the media are invited to disseminate ECLAC’s new economic growth projections for Latin American and Caribbean countries in 2023, which will be released this Thursday, April 20.
The full version of the press release with ECLAC’s new growth estimates, which includes a table with GDP projections for 2023, will be available on ECLAC’s website as of Thursday, April 20, at 11 a.m. local time in Chile.
