The present edition of the Survey consists of three parts. The first part covers the main aspects of the regional economy from a sectorial and thematic perspective. The second part contains information of the analysis of the economic performance of the 19 countries of Latin America and the Spanish-speaking Caribbean and Haiti. The third part is dedicated to the remaining countries of the Caribbean, mainly English-speaking countries. Finally, the Survey offers two statistical appendixes, one of them contained in a CD-ROM distributed with the printed version.



Current conditions and outlook, 2003

The Latin American and Caribbean economy will grow by 1.5% in 2003, thereby making a modest recovery from its 0.6% contraction in 2002. With per capita GDP for the year remaining flat, at 2.0% below its 1997 level, this will be the sixth year in a row that has been lost to the region in terms of economic growth.
