Colombia's economy grew 8.5% in Q1, beating expectations

BOGOTA, May 16 (Reuters) - Colombia’s economy grew 8.5% in the first quarter of 2022 compared with the year-earlier period, the government said on Monday, though analysts have warned inflationary pressures could temper growth later in the year.

The result was above median predictions in a Reuters poll last week, which forecast the Andean country’s gross domestic product (GDP) would grow by 7.5%. (Reporting by Oliver Griffin Editing by Chris Reese)
