Hide / Show Abstract

The Honduran economy's growth rate diminished in 2001 owing to a combination of adverse natural phenomena, a slump in international coffee prices and the global economic slowdown. As a result of the lower-than-expected growth rate of 2.6%, per capita GDP shrank for the third time since 1994 and the open unemployment rate increased.
