This year's Survey, the fifty-sixth edition in this series, is divided into two parts. The first analyses the main features of the regional economy, while the second examines the situation in the individual countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. A summarized statistical appendix is supplemented by the more detailed information that is provided on the accompanying CD-ROM for ease of data processing.




After three years of a political crisis involving ever-larger sections of civil society, two months of almost complete paralysis in urban economic life and a month of violent conflicts, in February 2004 Haiti entered a new political phase. President Jean-Bertrand Aristide left the country and power passed to a transition team headed by President Boniface Alexandre (29 February) and Prime Minister Gkrard Latortue (10 March). In May, further problems were caused by severe flooding that affected the south-east of the country, with heavy loss of human life.
