Description: Economy and Integration of Latin America.

  1. Regional deceleration. The Latin American economic growth rate: 1.1%
  2. Mexico and Central America: 2,7%
  3. Causes: global crisis, world trade reduction, and export commodity prices decline (agricultural, energy, crude oil, and raw materials)
  4. Financial markets volatility
  5. Investment reduction
  6. Unemployment rate: 6%
  7. The global crisis hit the region hard at the end of 2008 and early 2009, taking a toll on all of its countries.
  8. The economic slowdown cut into labour demand, unemployment rate is esteemed to rise to 8.3% for the region overall, while the new jobs that have been created are of poorer quality
  9. The effects of the crisis were channelled through the real sector of the economies, damaging what had been the main engines of regional growth
  10. Exports plunged, while the contraction of the economic activity worldwide, together with the drop in International Trade flows, lowered commodity prices, which hurt the terms of the international trade in Latin America
  11. At the same time, revenue from remittances and tourism fell, with Mexico and Central American countries and the Caribbean suffering the most, and Foreign direct investment (FDI) plummeted by 37%.
  12. Economic Growth is esteemed to be slower in some of the most open economies that have a less diversified portfolio of trade partners and a heavier reliance on manufacturing
  13. The same can be said for the Caribbean Economies, some of which are facing complex financial and exchange-rate situations
  14. Drop in foreign investment was generalised in all the subregions in Latin America and the Caribbean
  15. Brazil continued to be the main foreign direct investment (FDI) recipient, followed by Chile, Mexico, the Republic of Colombia and Argentina
  16. Among the medium-sized and large economies in Latin America, Chile is the economy with the highest proportion of foreign direct investment concerning its gross domestic product (8%)
  17. As in the past, the services sector received the largest amount of foreign direct investment, while the primary sector (agriculture, mining, and hydrocarbons) experienced a relative drop.
  18. The United States continued to be the largest investor in the region, followed by Spain and Canada
