CENTRAL AMERICA NEWS – In 2014 the volume of household consumption increased by 16% in Nicaragua, 7% in El Salvador, 5% in Panama and 6% in Guatemala, while in Costa Rica and Honduras it fell by 1% and 5%, respectively.

Panama stands out because of the rapid growth of its economy in recent years, which is currently visible in the consumption of its inhabitants, which in 2014 grew by 5% in turnover. Nicaragua, starting from lower levels, shows an equal growth in turnover, despite a 16% growth in volume due to lower prices.
