Valdez Albizu offered a general overview of the state of the economy of the Dominican Republic with the most relevant data regarding growth, monetary policy, inflation and the behavior of the external sector.

Regarding growth, the governor stated that the Dominican Republic continues its sustained recovery process, highlighting the monthly indicator of economic activity (IMAE) for January-September of 12.7%, influenced by the good performance of sectors with high productive chains such as construction , local manufacturing, free zones and trade“Growth projections for 2021 point to an expansion of more than 10%, which could be around 10.7%,” he estimated.

These positive prospects are supported by the gradual improvement in tourism, since some five million non-resident visitors are expected for the entire year 2021, as well as advances in the national vaccination plan that has managed to inoculate around 77% of the population. adult population with one dose and more than 63% with two doses.

Likewise, the governor highlighted the execution since March 2020 of the broad monetary easing plan worth RD $ 215 billion, approximately 5% of the gross domestic product (GDP), accompanied by a reduction of 150 basis points in the monetary policy rate .

This monetary policy measure contributed to maintaining high levels of liquidity in the financial system, enabling an expansion of private credit in local currency of around 10%. As the economy consolidates its recovery, the Central Bank of the Dominican Republic began in August of this year the gradual and orderly return of the liquidity provided to financial intermediaries during the pandemic, in support of the productive sectors.

Valdez Albizu pointed out that inflationary dynamics has been affected by transitory supply shocks associated with higher prices of oil and other raw materials, as well as the absence of containers and the increase in global freight costs, which have affected imports.

Valdez Albizu pointed out that, in the Dominican case, the distribution of the US $ 650 million for the allocation of special drawing rights (SDR) by the IMF, was used to strengthen the international reserves of the Central Bank.

The governor highlighted the great work carried out by the President of the Republic Luis Abinader to promote the different sectors of the economy and achieve their resilience, as well as the transcendental role played in this regard by the country’s private sector.
