The government lowers the projection of growth of the economy in 2023 from 4 to 3%

The Dominican government has once again revised its economic growth projection for 2023, reflecting increased uncertainty both internationally and domestically. The initial estimate of 4.25% growth in March was later lowered to 4% in June, and further reduced to 3% in August, according to the Ministry of Economy’s Macroeconomic Panorama 2023-2027 report.

While economic activity saw a year-on-year growth of 2.9% in July 2023, the cumulative growth for the first seven months of the year was only 1.4%, compared to 5.5% in July of the previous year. The Ministry of Economy attributes the expansion registered until July to improvements in local manufacturing, construction, commerce, and transport, possibly influenced by liquidity provisions and reductions in the monetary policy rate implemented by the Central Bank.
