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.



The composition of imports and exports and the terms of trade

The decline of the region’s imports, occasioned by balance of payments problems during 1952, reversed the rising tendency of the quantum of imports, observed since 1947-49 in most of the Latin-American countries. In fact, having reached, in 1951, a maximum of 7,437 million dollars, calculated at 1948 prices, imports returned to a more normal level, estimated at 6,754 millions for 1952.
