Colombia’s government and central bank board are seeking ways to sustain growth of 4.8 percent this year, amid signs that the economy is slowing, W Radio said on its website, without saying where it obtained the information.
President Juan Manuel Santos met with central bank board members, including Finance Minister Juan Carlos Echeverry, this morning.
Santos also discussed the level of Colombia’s foreign currency reserves and its credit line with the International Monetary Fund, W Radio said.
The central bank’s press office declined to comment on the story, saying the meeting was confidential.
