Colombia's economy contracted 9% in third quarter, more than predicted
BOGOTA, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Colombia's economy shrank 9% in the third quarter compared with the same period last year, the government said on Tuesday, as it continues to feel the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and a long lockdown.
The contraction was more severe than the median prediction by analysts, who said the Andean country's gross domestic product (GDP) would contract by 8.7%.
