Haiti’s Central Bank Signals Mixed Economic Outlook

According to press reports, the Bank of the Republic of Haiti (BRH) is projecting a mixed economic outlook and pins the economic situation on what obtains within the next three months on the socio-political climate.

The Central Bank reveals that the economy has been impacted negatively during October and November last year.

It says for 65 percent of the companies surveyed; the unsettled political climate led to the layoff of 10 to 25 percent of their workforce.

Opposition parties have been staging street demonstrations in support of their calls for President Jovenel Moise to step down amid allegations of corruption.
