The reason for the weakening of investor confidence is due to the constant political crises in the country that limit the possibility of prospects for economic growth.
“Prolonged government paralysis reduces the predictability of policy responses, limiting investment and potential growth, in our view. We forecast a GDP growth of 2.5% in 2022, after a rebound of 13.3% in 2021, with a high dynamism in exports, somewhat offset by moderate investment and consumption”, explains S&P in its report.
