Haiti experienced its worst year financially since 2010, according to a new report from the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

According to ECLAC estimates, the Haitian economy recorded negative growth of 0.7 percent in 2019, far below the 1.5 percent growth rate recorded in 2018. This is the first negative variation for a decade – after the 2010 earthquake, which experienced a negative growth of .5 percent.
