Auspicious signs of recovery could be glimpsed in the Ecuadorian economy in 1984. After the rapid deterioration of the economic position which culminated in a crisis in 1983, the gross domestic product improved by 3%. This was essentially because agriculture and fishing recovered from the severe losses suffered on account of floods and heavy seas in the preceding year, and the petroleum industry once again considerably increased its production. Rates of inflation substantially declined, while creditworthy estimates detected a slight fall in levels of unemployment.
