Brazil: Business confidence ticks up in February

February 29, 2012

The business confidence index published by the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV, Fundacao Getulio Vargas) increased 0.2% over the previous month to 102.5 points in February from 102.3 points in January. The reading mainly reflected a rise in the present situation index, whereas the expectations index declined over the previous month. Sentiment edged up for the third consecutive month, following on 10 straight months of moderating business confidence. That said, the index remains close to the 100-point threshold, indicating 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
