Brazil: Business confidence continues to rise in April

April 26, 2012

The business confidence index published by the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV, Fundacao Getulio Vargas) increased a seasonally adjusted 0.3% over the previous month in April to 103.3 points, up from 103.0 points in March. The reading reflected a rise of the same magnitude of both the expectations as well as the present situation index. Sentiment edged up for the fifth consecutive month, following on 10 straight months of moderating business confidence. That said, the index still sits close to the 100-point threshold, indicating relatively subdued optimism levels. Moreover, business confidence remains well below the post-crisis peak of 116.5 points recorded in March 2010. Subdued confidence in the business community is likely to weigh on investment growth going forward.
