AEIR 2022

After contracting by 4.8% in 2020, the economy grew by 1.7% in 2021. Growth momentum stalled in the first quarter of 2021 as mobility restrictions were imposed due to a resurgence of COVID-19 cases from the omicron variant. Nonetheless, immediately after the restrictions were lifted in September 2021, contact-intensive services recovered and private consumption returned to pre-pandemic levels. Given the recovery in domestic and foreign demand, as well as an expected uptick in private investment, the economy is projected to grow by 2.7% in 2022. Growth is expected to moderate to 1.8% in 2023 on a reduction in net exports.
