In brief: Panama’s economic activity posts strong growth

* Panama’s national statistics institute (Inec) has released figures which show that the country’s monthly indicator of economic activity (Imae) posted year-on-year growth of 18.02% in September. This brings the accumulated growth in the first nine months of 2021 to 14.94% compared with the same period in 2020, indicating continued recovery from the impact of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic which caused Panama’s GDP to shrink by 17.9% in 2020. It cites mining, trade, construction, other community, social & personal services, transport, and storage & communications as sectors which posted a good performance.
