Brazil Economic Activity November 2017


Brazil: Economic activity broadly stable in November

January 18, 2018

In November, economic activity rose 0.5% from the previous month in seasonally-adjusted terms, according to the Central Bank’s monthly indicator for economic activity (IBC-Br, Indice de Atividade Economica do Banco Central). The result was slightly above October’s 0.4% increase and overshot market analysts’ expectations of a softer 0.4% rise.

On an annual basis, economic activity rose 2.8% in November, which was below October’s 3.1% expansion. Meanwhile, the trend continued to improve and annual average growth in economic activity came in at 0.3% in October to 0.7% in November, the best reading since September 2014.

The analysts surveyed for this month’s LatinFocus Consensus Forecast expect the economy to grow 2.5% in 2018, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate. For 2019, the panel of analysts sees GDP rising 2.7%.
