IMF pre­dicts economic growth for An­tigua and Bar­buda

Jamaica Gleaner - - GROWTH & JOBS -

ST JOHN’S, An­tigua (CMC): THE AN­TIGUA and Bar­buda econ­omy is ex­pected to grow by three per cent this year, un­der­pinned by the con­tin­ued re­cov­ery in the tourism sec­tor and in­vest­ments in new fa­cil­i­ties, the In­ter­na­tional Mone­tary Fund (IMF) has said.

An IMF del­e­ga­tion, headed by Mered­ith Arnold McIn­tyre, has ended a two-week visit to the coun­try and said that growth last year was 3. 7 per cent.

He said the growth this year re­flects mainly the still-tight fi­nanc­ing con­di­tions for the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors.
