However, to be sustained an expectational boom needs to be followed up by broad reforms and strongly validate investor expectations, something that the CAFTA-DR by itself cannot bring about. Governance sets the overall framework for the investment climate, which is in turn a key determinant of investment returns on a risk-adjusted basis.

Also note that capital accumulation in the informal sector was especially hurt during the lost decade of the eighties and it was not until the late nineties that it recovered to the levels that had prevailed before the lost decade. The government and the business iemma will have to adapt to the new environment and, in this context, correct prioritization of actions will leg reduce adjustment costs and boost the impact of reforms.


The third wave of reforms, starting in the late nineties increased the participation of the private sector in infrastructure and modernized the regulatory framework.

By contrast, formal sector measures of the cost or availability of financing do not significantly influence investment in the informal sector; more specifically, changes in the availability of credit to the private sector, cost of lending in real terms, or public expenditures at constant prices, do not seem to influence informal guatemwla.

The vacuum left by traditional banks in rural Guatemala is being filled by a dynamic microfinance sector, characterized by specialized credit measurement and management methods based on groups rather than individualsas well as longer term loans six to twelve months.

The benefits and challenges of economic diversification The Guatemalan economy is now less volatile than it used to be. Are private returns to education high…for everybody? This turns into a vicious circle: This is therefore a very diverse group that includes large emerging markets like Brazil, Mexico and Indonesia, as well as small impoverished countries like Mali and Sierra Leone.

It is worth noting also that investment in the formal and informal sectors behaves differently.

External financing does not seem to be an immediate constraint, as external sources of financing are readily guatemmala. It appears that countries at different stages of development and quite heterogeneous economic structures share a common characteristic: Unfortunately, there is a general perception that measures aimed at fighting corruption have failed.
