Trade Balance in Brazil

Brazil Trade Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Brazil - Trade Balance

Underlying momentum should have slowed marginally in Q1 2022, before waning further in Q2. Average monthly economic activity in January and February was below that of Q4 2021. Similarly, industrial output and the manufacturing PMI in Q1 came in below the prior period’s levels. That said, the unemployment rate decreased to its lowest level since Q1 2016 in the quarter and annual wage growth was robust, which should have supported private spending. Turning to Q2, the prior gains to household consumption were likely dampened as monetary conditions were tightened further and inflation remained at levels not seen in decades in April. Furthermore, consumer sentiment remained downbeat in the month and the real has recently weakened markedly. On 1 May, an additional measure was deployed to boost the economy: Taxes on industrial products were cut by 35.0%, which will reduce government revenues.
