Washington.- The Central American countries and the Dominican Republic will continue to grow around 4.5% in 2016, on the United States’ expected economic recovery and falling oil prices, Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) president Luis Alberto Moreno said Wednesday.

He said the situation creates a proper ambiance for the region to enact reforms to increase productivity and an environment for competitiveness.

"We must use this environment to forge policies to achieve growth, stability, employment and equity," the executive said in his speech to open the 13th Meeting of Governors of Central America and the Dominican Republic, held in the US capital from February 29 to March 1.

I hate these comparisons. When making comparisons, compare apples to apples. The DR is a country not a region. If we are going to see how each country grows lets do it individually. Otherwise lets compare the Caribbean region with Central America.
