Population in Colombia
Colombia - PopulationThe economy seems to have kept pace in the first quarter. Household spending likely remained resilient despite a surge in unemployment: Retail sales growth accelerated, on average, in January–February, while consumers were markedly more optimistic in the quarter. Exports, however, contracted in Q1 on shrinking sales of oil. Meanwhile, the independent Fiscal Rule Committee relaxed its fiscal deficit targets for this year and next to account for the added burden of Venezuelan migrants on the public purse. The three leading credit rating agencies subsequently expressed concern that frequent changes to the rule could undermine the credibility of fiscal policy. In the political arena, the Lower House rejected President Duque’s attempts to roll back aspects of the peace accord in early April, thus reaffirming the challenges of enforcing the ruling party’s mandate in a deeply divided Congress.
