Average growth in Latin America has been hindered in 2018 (0.9%) by the recession in Argentina, although it will recover in 2019 (1.8%) and 2020 (2.6%). The region presents highly diverse economic perspectives, with crisis in Argentina, uncertainty in Brazil and resilience in the Pacific Alliance.
Latin America will grow 1.3% in 2018 and 2.1% in 2019, with considerable heterogeneity across countries. These forecasts are lower than the previous ones, mainly due to the revision of growth in Argentina and Brazil. This adjustment in the two countries could not be compensated by the upward revisions of growth in Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Paraguay.
