This year's Survey, the fifty-sixth edition in this series, is divided into two parts. The first analyses the main features of the regional economy, while the second examines the situation in the individual countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. A summarized statistical appendix is supplemented by the more detailed information that is provided on the accompanying CD-ROM for ease of data processing.




In 2003 Barbados managed to halt the decline suffered by its economy in the preceding two years, posting positive growth (2.2%) that continued into the first quarter of 2004 (4.2%). The expansion was mainly attributable to tourism, commerce and construction, which grew by 7.3%, 3.1% and 3%’ respectively, in 2003 and by 6.2%, 3.5% and 3.1% in the early part of 2004.
