Économie du Costa Rica en un coup d’œil

Economic Outlook Note - Costa Rica

GDP will grow by 2.3% in 2023 and 3.7% in 2024. High inflation and a tight monetary policy stance will hold back private consumption in 2023, and fiscal restraint will contain public spending. Exports will be hampered by weaker global growth in 2023 but gain strength in 2024. Annual inflation peaked at 12% recently but is set to decline to 4.2% in year-average terms by 2024, still above the 3% target.
