NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates
El Salvador's trade growth will see a moderate slowdown in 2016, but this will not be sufficient to weigh overly heavily on the freight transport sector. In 2017, we anticipate that growth will strengthen, in large part driven by US consumer demand - growth in exports will outweigh imports over the coming years. In Nicaragua, a robust expansion is expected in Nicaraguan trade volumes in 2016 and 2017, driven by a robust real GDP growth outlook. Imports related to major projects will see imports far outweigh exports, and this will support future growth in the freight transport sector. The biggest of these is the plan to build a new canal through the country, linking the two oceans.
