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 external sector

The strategic importance still attaching to the external sector in the present structure of the Latin American economy has already been discussed in the preceding chapters, particularly in connexion with the structure of aggregate supply and demand. The object of this chapter is to build up a fairly substantial body of data that will give an up-to-date picture of the situation and indicate the major trends of both foreign trade and external financing and external capital movements since the mid-nineteen-fifties.
