The Economic Survey of Latin America 1980 Analyzes the evolution of the economy of the region in 1980. It examines economic developments in each of the countries of Latin America: production, prices, trade, current account balances and financing, economic growth, external sector and inflation. Specially highlighted in the economic development of Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago in the '70s.




Very preliminary estimates of the GDP for 1980 show an increase of 2% in real terms. If accurate, this would mean an interruption of four consecutive years of negative growth. At all events, the available indicators point to a clear improvement after the extremely adverse evolution of the economy in the period 1976-1979.
