In brief: Honduras’ trade deficit continues to rise

* Honduras’ central bank (BCH) has released new figures which show the country’s exports totalled US$3.13bn in the first seven months of 2021, up 18.0% on the same period in 2020. Meanwhile imports totalled US$7.1bn in the first half of the year, up 44.6% year-on-year. This leaves a trade deficit of US$4.0bn, an increase of 75.3% on the same period in 2020. The BCH attributes the surge in imports to the recovery of economic activity – both at an international and domestic level – which had been restricted in line with efforts to stem the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).
