Published since 1948, this report examines various aspects of the previous year’s macroeconomic situation in the region and makes projections for the coming months. The study also includes country notes that review the performance of the main economic indicators in the period analysed.




While industry in Latin America is. mainly directed towards the domestic market, and agriculture is divided between domestic consumption and export, mining is definitely directed towards the latter. The extent of industrialisation in Latin America is still too limited for any other course. Undoubtedly, with the progress of industry, the processing of metals within the countries concerned is on a larger scale today than it was before the war and this is one of the salient points of the industrialisation policy of Latin America, but, so far, the general pre-war situation has not changed fundamentally.
