Haiti’s economy is projected to grow by 6.5 percent in 2013, according to the International Monetary Fund’s latest World Economic Outlook.
That number is in line with a projection made by the IMF in late 2012.
Haiti’s economy grew 2.8 percent last year, although it had been projected to grow at a significantly higher rate. The IMF said the reduction was due in part to a series of crippling tropical storms and low execution of public capital spending.
A January projection by the World Bank forecasted a 6 percent growth rate for the country this year. via Caribbean Journal
