Imports in Brazil
Brazil - Imports (percent change)Available data for Q3 paints a mixed picture. While overall activity grew at a robust rate in July–August, the economy appeared to be operating at two different speeds. Externally, exports were supported by rising commodity prices and strong foreign demand. However, domestically, industrial production shrank in July–September and retail sales tumbled at the fastest pace in eight months in August amid declining consumer confidence, pointing to muted household spending in the quarter. Meanwhile, senators have voted to recommend that President Bolsonaro face various criminal charges—including crimes against humanity—for his handling of the pandemic. While the charges are likely to be struck down by Prosecutor-General Augusto Aras, a Bolsonaro appointee, the vote will put further pressure on the president, whose approval ratings have slumped to all-time lows in recent months.
